To determine

Pick the keyword from the given list: The name given to the “rivers” of air.

Explanation of Solution

Fast- moving “rivers” of air are known as jet streams. Jet streams affect the duration of the journey of airlines to a large extent. A delay and advance of half an hour are observed to fly across the United States when the jet streams are opposite and favor to the plane respectively.

Upper boundaries of cold and warm air masses facilitate the formation of jet streams...
