Definition of the noun air current

What does air current mean as a name of something?

noun

  1. air moving (sometimes with considerable force) from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure

Explanation

Air current: Air currents can be caused by differences in temperature, pressure, or impurity concentration. Temperature differences can cause air currents because warmer air is less dense than cooler air, causing the warmer air to appear "lighter." Thus, if the warm air is under the cool air, air currents will form as they exchange places.
