1 of 5
How does temporal changes in the position of the overhead sun affect wind direction?
As the sun moves 23.5 degrees North to South so does the ITCZ which brings bands of low pressure, clouds and convection rainfall
2 of 5
How does the Smoothness of the Earth's surface affect wind direction?
Land heats up more quickly and cools quicker than sea creating high pressure in summer and low in winter
