The winds theory is based on PDEs whose unknown is the velocity vector field depending on time and spatial coordinates. The geometric dynamics is formulated using ODEs associated to a flow and a Riemannian metric, where the unknown is the velocity vector field depending on time. In this paper, we join these ideas showing that some geometric dynamics models generate winds. The second part of this paper is focused on the stability analysis of the considered models.
