See explanation


Local pressure/temperature changes in the interior of the Earth's

crust result in Earth tremors and Earthquakes, volcanoes and hot

springs that are experienced by us, on the surface. Likewise, we

experience air movements, due to local density-changes, in the

gaseous medium, over the surface, called daily winds and seasonal


The changes in temperature are produced by Sun's radiation that

changes with distance and area exposed to the Sun, at the instant.

The Earth's day/night spin contributes to lateral/vertical wind

movement by turning continuously the hemispherical surface that

faces the Sun, with period 1 day.
