Land and Sea Breezes
During the day the land near the coast becomes warmer than the sea. An ascending current, therefore, rises over the land, and a breeze, called the sea breeze, sets in from the sea, At night the land, from its more rapid cooling, soon becomes colder than the water; the ascending current then rises from the water, and a breeze, called land breeze, sets in from the land.
