bora

bora The local name for a cold and typically very dry wind from the north-east, blowing down from the mountains on the eastern side of the Adriatic Sea, which is most common in winter on northern Adriatic coasts. The wind is probably a consequence of continental high pressure in central Europe with low pressure to the south in the Mediterranean. It is often accompanied by much precipitation when associated with depressions in the Adriatic. In other areas the name is used generically for cold squalls moving downhill from uplands.

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates.

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content.
