The Roaring Forties are strong westerly winds found in the Southern Hemi­sphere, gen­er­al­ly between the lat­i­tudes of 40 and 50 degrees. The strong west­-­to-east air currents are caused by the com­bi­na­tion of air being dis­placed from the Equator towards the South Pole, the Earth's ro­ta­tion, and the scarcity of land­mass­es to serve as wind­break­s.
