Circum Polar Low Pressure Belt

 Circum Polar Low Pressure Belt is located between 60°N to 65°N and 60°S to 65°S.

  • It is a zone of two winds—the warm Westerly winds meet the cold Polar Easterlies. As the Westerlies are lighter, they rise over the cold polar winds creating a low pressure area.
  • These belts experience stormy weather and cyclonic activity, especially during winters.
