Local winds might be (land/sea breezes) - but most larger scale winds
are driven by pressure differentials. The hot northwesterlies we get
are the anticlockwise rotation around high pressure systems (that of
course works clockwise in the northern hemishpere). If we're lucky and
northwesterlies aren't too strong, the temperature differential thing
the Tasman Sea gets going and we'll get a sea breeze.
Our coast is wave-dominated rather than tide dominated - only around
~1 metre tides.

Well..... We do have fiber optic cables.
What would be the attenuation figure on multimode fiber running from
Australia to the United States.
