the surface winds of each hemisphere are divided into three wind belts.
The doldrums is a belt around the Earth near the equator where sailing ships sometimes get stuck on windless waters.
a belt of calm air and sea occurring in both the northern and southern hemispheres
The trade winds are the prevailing pattern of easterly surface winds
The westerlies, anti-trades, or prevailing westerlies, are prevailing winds from the west toward the east in the middle latitudes
The polar easterlies are the dry, cold prevailing winds that blow from the high-pressure areas
Jet streams are fast flowing, relatively narrow air currents
