Description:

This animation shows Earth science students how coastal breezes are caused by daily fluctuations in air temperature. The introduction explains how warm air rising over land causes cooler air to flow in from the sea. The animation shows the position of the sun, the local time, and the temperatures over land and over water. Red and blue arrows indicate the direction of air flow. Movie controls allow students to repeat, pause, or step through the animation, which can give students more time to analyze the images. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
