1-3) The land sea breeze is a lighrt wind blowing from the sea as a result of the temperature difference between the land and the sea. As this temperature difference reverses from day to night, the daytime sea breeze turns into a nighttime land breeze. If you were developing a numerical model of the sea-land breeze, should you include the effects of the earths rotation? Justify!
