Question 9

Which of the statements given below is correct?

(i) In winter the winds flow from the land to the ocean.
(ii) In summer the winds flow from the land towards the ocean.
(iii) A cyclone is formed by a very high-pressure system with very high-speed winds revolving around it.
(iv) The coastline of India is not vulnerable to cyclones.

Answer

(i) In winter the winds flow from the land to the ocean.

During winter the direction of wind is towards the ocean from the land. The water in ocean cools down later as compared to the land; land cools down faster than the ocean water. So, the temperature of water in oceans is higher than that of land. The direction of wind moves from the high pressure area to the low pressure area. 
Hence, the wind blows from ocean to the land.
