THE TRAMONTANE (FRANCE)
Marrying travel and scientific study
An episode from the series WIND QUEST
The south of France is gripped by two famous winds: the Mistral and the Tramontane. The Mistral finishes its race after Marseille while the Tramontane leaps to Spain. These 2 twin winds are an essential reason for the climate in these regions.
From the Toulouse weather centre to the Frestyle World Cup of Leucate and to the Seuil de Naurouze, where the Tramontane originates, these powerful and capricious winds are not easy to master.
