Sea breeze is formed during –

A. Day time
B. Night time
C. Both
D. Seasonal
Answer» A. Day time
Explanation: Sea breezes and all other winds blow from more atmospheric pressure to less atmospheric pressure. Water heats up and cools down slower than land. During the day, the land is heated up and is less dense than the water while at night, the water is less dense than the land. The more denser it is, the more the atmospheric pressure there is. Therefore, sea breezes occur during the day but not at night.
