More about Answers
1. A sea-breeze (or onshore breeze) is a wind from the sea that develops over land near coasts during day time. It is formed by increasing temperature differences between the land and water which create a pressure minimum over the land due to its relative warmth and forces higher pressure, cooler air from the sea to move inland. During night, land gets cooler than sea and land breeze happens.
