Chapter 4 Class 7 - Heat

Coastal areas experience interesting phenomena called Land Breeze and Sea Breeze.

  • During the day , the land gets heated faster .
  • The air over the land also gets heated and rises up .
  • To fill the gap, air from the sea rushes in , while the hot air over the land moves towards the sea.
  • The air from the sea is known as Sea Breeze .
  • At night , water cools down more slowly than land, and so the opposite phenomenon takes place.
  • Air over the sea rises up , and cool air from the land rushes in to take its place.
  • This air from the land towards the sea is known as the Land Breeze .
