Ode to the West Wind

ODE TO THE WEST WIND Summary The autumnal west wind sweeps along the leaves and "winged seeds." The seeds will remain dormant until spring. The wind is thus a destroyer and a preserver. The west wind also sweeps along storm clouds. It is the death song of the year. With the night that closes the year will come rain, lightning, and hail; there will be storms in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. The poet pleads with the west wind to endow him with some of its power, for he feels depressed and helpless...

Wind Chill

Wind chill is the perceived decrease in air temperature felt by the body on exposed sin due to the flow of cold air. Wind chill temperatures are always lower than air temperature. The human body loses heat through convection, evaporation, conduction and radiation. The rate of heat loss by a surface through convection depends on the wind speed above that surface. As a surface heats the air around it, an insulating boundary layer of warm air forms agains the surface. Moving...

Explain How Urban Heat Islands Develop? to What Extent Uhi Influence

also a reduction in heat dispersion due to altered airflow where wind speed is reduced lower than that of rural areas due to friction posed by urban structures. Average wind speeds are usually at least 5% lower than that of rural areas. For instance, winds exceeding 10.5m/s were recorded at the open Croydon Airport, a suburb in London for a total of 371 hours yet the same wind speed only lasted 13 hrs in South Kensington. This reduced wind speed coupled with black radiation from tall buildings further...
