The Winds of the Mediterranean 

The dominant winds of the Mediterranean are chanelled through the deep valleys between the mountain chains and sweep into the sea from set angles. The Mistral blows through the Garonne and Rhone vallies and then into the Gulf of Lion and across to Corsica and Sardinia, where it is chanelled between the two islands in the Straits of Bonifacio.
