Here is a little insight in what wind really are?

Wind, from theĀ Tacuinum Sanitatis

Wind is theĀ flow ofĀ gases on a large scale. OnĀ Earth, wind consists of the bulk movement of air. InĀ outer space,Ā solar wind is the movement of gases or charged particles from theĀ sun through space, whileĀ planetary wind is theoutgassing of lightĀ chemical elements from a planet’s atmosphere into space. Winds are commonly classified by theirĀ spatial scale, theirĀ speed, the types of forces that cause them, the regions in which they occur, and their effect. The strongest observed winds on a planet in ourĀ solar system occur onĀ NeptuneandĀ Saturn.

InĀ meteorology, winds are often referred to according to their strength, and the direction from which the wind is blowing. Short bursts of high speed wind are termed gusts. Strong winds of intermediate duration (around one minute) are termedĀ squalls. Long-duration winds have various names associated with their average strength, such as breeze,Ā gale,Ā storm,Ā hurricane, and typhoon. Wind occurs on a range of scales, from thunderstorm flows lasting tens of minutes, to local breezes generated by heating of land surfaces and lasting a few hours, toĀ global winds resulting from the difference in absorption ofĀ solar energy between theĀ climate zones on Earth. The two main causes of large scaleĀ atmospheric circulation are the differential heating between the equator and the poles, and the rotation of the planet (Coriolis effect). Within the tropics,thermal low circulations over terrain and high plateaus can driveĀ monsooncirculations. In coastal areas theĀ sea breeze/land breeze cycle can define local winds; in areas that have variable terrain, mountain and valley breezes can dominate local winds.

A breeze lifts a veil

InĀ human civilization, wind has inspiredĀ mythology, influenced the events ofhistory, expanded the range ofĀ transport andĀ warfare, and provided aĀ power source forĀ mechanical work,Ā electricity, andĀ recreation. Wind has powered the voyages ofĀ sailing ships across Earth’s oceans.Ā Hot air balloons use the wind to take short trips, and powered flight uses it to increase lift and reduce fuel consumption. Areas ofĀ wind shear caused by variousĀ weather phenomena can lead to dangerous situations forĀ aircraft. When winds become strong, trees and man-made structures are damaged or destroyed.

Winds can shape landforms, via a variety ofĀ Aeolian processes such as the formation of fertile soils, such asĀ loess, and byĀ erosion.Ā Dust from largeĀ deserts can be moved great distances from its source region by theĀ prevailing winds; winds that are accelerated by rough topography and associated with dust outbreaks have been assigned regional names in various parts of the world because of their significant effects on those regions. Wind affects the spread ofĀ wildfires. Winds disperse seeds from various plants, enabling the survival and dispersal of those plant species, as well as flying insect populations. When combined with cold temperatures, wind has a negative impact onĀ livestock. Wind affects animals’ food stores, as well as their hunting and defensive strategies.

The amazing wind:

The wind is amazing. It can be intimidating, fascinating and enjoyable. It can devastate and create. Humans are fascinated by the wind and are trying to harness it through our creations that make us benefit from the wind and enjoy it.

Lets go out there and enjoy the wind. I will today. It brings me and my wife closer to our family.

Live like the wind. Be calm when you need the focus and let the storm inside of you bring out the very best!
