  Trade wind - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The trade winds are the prevailing winds in the tropics, blowing from the high-pressure area in the horse latitudes towards the low-pressure area around the equator.
The trade winds blow predominantly from the northeast in the northern hemisphere and from the southeast in the southern hemisphere.
Because winds are named for the direction from which the wind is blowing, these winds are called the northeast trade winds in the Northern Hemisphere and the southeast trade winds in the Southern Hemisphere.

Trade winds are caused by hot air rising at the Equator and the consequent movement of air from north and south to take its place.
The winds are deflected towards the west because of the Earth's west-to-east rotation.
The strong trade wind, met in its course by these elevations, circled and eddied about their summits, and was sometimes driven down the steep ravine and swept across the valley, ruffling in its passage the otherwise tranquil surface of the lake.

 Atmosphere - Wind - Instructor
You would observe that the wind moving from the equator to the north pole was traveling in a straight line, with the earth's rotating surface moving beneath it.
Roughly speaking, trade winds occupy the area between 0 (the equator) and 30 degrees latitude; prevailing westerlies the area between 30 and 60 degrees; and polar easterlies the region between 60 and 90 degrees (the pole).
The three wind belts are separated by zones near 0, 30 and 60 degrees: the doldrums, horse latitudes, and polar front.

The trade winds (named centuries ago by sailors on trade ships) are quite reliably blowing from the east at an angle to the equator such that they bring air from higher latitudes to the equatorial "zone of convergence".
In the high pressure regions at the eastern edge of the ocean basins where the trade winds originate, the climate is typically hot, sunny, and dry (Baja California, for example); as the winds move westward across the oceans, they gain moisture, which is eventually dumped at the western side of the ocean basins.
The trade winds are part of a circulation of air, a "cell" when seen in profile, which starts with rising air in the tropics.

 17 June 1997 -- Low-level cyclonic vortices in the eastern North Pacific trade wind region   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
A train of low-level mesoscale cyclonic vortices (also known as actinae or actinoform clouds) was observed within the trade wind stratocumulus field over the eastern North Pacific (between Hawaii and Baja California) on 17 June 1997.
From the appearance of the cloud bands which spiral radially inward, low-level convergence is sufficient to initiate upwelling convection in the vicinity of the larger vortex centers, but this convection has difficulty penetrating the cap of the well-defined trade wind inversion.
These vortices drifted west-southwestward in the prevailing northeasterly trade wind flow, maintaining approximately 4 degrees of latitudinal separation.
