Quick stupid question:

is it pronounced 'upwind'; as in blow, or 'upwind'; as in twist??

I know it's trivial but i don't want to make a clown of myself when presenting on this...

doesn't the proper pronunciation become obvious from the meaning of the term? ... i wouldn't use the term unless you first know what it means ..
