It’s not just a bunch of hot air — wind is pretty cool! In this BrainPOP Tim and Moby take on the mystery of where wind comes from and what it is, exactly. For instance, you’ll find out how the sun plays a big role in the creation of wind. You’ll also learn about the effect of local geography on wind patterns, and how the Earth’s rotation affects wind currents from the equator. Finally, Tim defines some jargon you may have heard, including jet streams, prevailing winds, doldrums, and trade winds. This movie will really blow your mind!
