The land heats quickly and cools quickly when compared to the ocean surface which heats and cools slowly, and in summer or daytime the land due to high absorption of incoming shortwave solar radiation temperature increases due to which the air rises upwards of convectional flow as the temp. increases the pressure decreases. The winds blow usually from high pressure to low pressure which is from land to sea which is called sea breeze and incontrast to this phenomenon i.e.the ocean gets heats slowly and cools slowly and in winter or nights the ocean which gets heated by sun's radiation dissipates heat slowly and normally temp increases and pressure decreases the winds blow from high pressure to low pressure i.e from land to sea we call it as land breeze which flow due to conventional currents of air.
