Q. 73.7( 3 Votes )

Enumerate the factors that influence movement of air.

Answer :

Pressure gradient, Coriolis effect and friction influence the movement of air.

Pressure gradient- Air moves from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure as observed during land and sea breeze.


Coriolis effect- is the deflection of moving air caused by the rotation of the earth.


Friction- It only effects the air movement in contact with the Earth. Friction slows down the air and if the air slows down, Coriolis effect has more effect then of air movement.
