What causes land breeze and sea breeze?
A) The differential heating of land and sea by the Sun results in the movement of air.
B) Hot air from the sea blows over the land because there is a high pressure area over the sea.
C) Cold air blows from the land over the sea because there is a low pressure area over land.
D) Air blows from land over the sea because of the rotation of Earth on its axis.
I think the answer is A or B but I m leaning toward B.
It is B.
The wind will blow from the higher pressure over the water to lower pressure over the land causing the sea breeze. The sea breeze strength will vary depending on the temperature difference between the land and the ocean. At night, the roles reverse. The air over the ocean is now warmer than the air over the land.posted by Skylar
That is what I thought. But thank you for explaining it to me so that I can understand why it is the answer.posted by JT
