Zephyr GRE Vocabulary Flashcard

/ˈzef.əʳ/ (noun)


a gentle breeze or wind, light and mild wind, puff of air, draft, waft – delicate fabric or garment


When the wind blows over the ocean’s surface it creates waves. The size of the wave depends upon how far, how fast and how long the wind or zephyr blows. A gentle breeze will form ripples on the surface but strong, steady winds over long distances create large waves. Even on a day when there is no wind at all, there may still be large waves crashing on the beach. These waves were probably created by a distant storm out at sea and the wave energy traveled for days before it arrived.
