Global Winds Winds that blow steadily from specific directions over long distances
Temperatures near the poles are much lower than they are near the equator and so the movement of air between the equator and the poles produces global winds.
The Coriolis Effect Global winds do not follow a straight path because the earth rotates from west to east. The winds seem curved.
In the Northern Hemisphere, global winds turn toward the right. In the Southern Hemisphere, winds curve toward the left.
Global Wind Belts Doldrums – near the equator Horse latitudes – warm air from the equator divides and flows north and south
Trade winds – Steady easterly winds Prevailing westerlies – Winds that blow toward the poles are turned toward the east.
Polar Easterlies – Cold air near the poles sinks back towards the lower latitudes.

Global Wind Patterns. Remember… When we talked about air pressure we said that cold air sinks and warm air rises. This movement causes air to move.
What causes wind? The uneven heating of Earth’s surface by the sun causes temperature differences in air. Warm air rises, creating areas of low pressure.
