Land breeze and Sea breeze

Land breeze and Sea breeze
The winds that are formed in the coastal regions due to the uneven heating and cooling of the land and the oceans over shorter periods are called the land breeze and the sea breeze.
The land heats up and cools down quickly, whereas the sea gets heated up slowly and can retain the heat for a longer period of time.

The air in contact with the land also gets heated up and ascends as the land heats up quickly during the daytime. This leads to the formation of low pressure over the land which causes the comparatively cooler air to blow from the sea. This is known as the sea breeze.

As the land cools faster than the sea during the night it would be high pressure over the land and low pressure over the sea. This results in the movement of air from the land to the sea. This is the land breeze. The land breeze which starts blowing at night becomes active early in the morning and ceases by sunrise.
