Answer :

The winds which constantly blow in the same direction throughout the year are called the Permanent winds. They are also called planetary winds or the prevailing winds.

There are three types of permanent winds:


1. Trade winds-Trade winds blow from the subtropical high-pressure belt to the Equatorial low-pressure belt in Northern and Southern hemisphere. They blow in a constant direction throughout the year and in a regular manner. These winds are named so because these are helpful for the traders while sailing in the sea


2. Westerlies-blow from the tropical high-pressure belt to the sub-polar low-pressure belt in both the hemispheres.


3. Polar Easterlies- Polar easterlies are the cold and dry winds that blow from the polar high-pressure belt to subpolar low-pressure belt. They are formed as cold winds at the poles and begin to move or flow towards the equator.
