The movement of air masses from a place of higher atmospheric pressure to a place of lower atmospheric pressure. Areas of different atmospheric pressure are caused by uneven heating of the Earth’s surface by the sun’s rays. Winds can vary in intensity from a gentle breeze of 2 km/h to a hurricane blowing at over 100 km/h.
