Meridional Flow

(north-south air circulation)

Meridional Flow means air circulation between the equator and polls, parallel to longitudes, i.e., north-to-south or south-to-north. This type of circulation causes Temperature extremes. Conversely, east-to-west or west-to-east air flow is termed Zonal Flow.
