Convection is the transfer of heat and/or molecules by currents of air or liquids. When clothing or footwear allows the free passage of air, it leads to more rapid heating or cooling. Windproof shells help prevent convection; conversely open mesh in footwear and clothing helps ventilation. Convection is the primary form of heat and mass transfer on Earth.
