Answer to Question #60056 in Quantum Mechanics for Cin

Question #60056
Near the shore, winds tend to blow out toward the water at night. What drives this process?
Expert's answer
This phenomena is called an offshore breeze. At night, land is cooling faster than water; the air above the land also cools and, therefore, its density grows. As a result, the pressure above the land is greater than above the water, and the air moves from the regions with higher pressure (land) to the ones with lower pressure (water).
