An ascending wind is properly called anabatic (Ascending Anabatic.) This normally happens by day, when surface heating warms the air and makes it less dense, so it flows up.
An descending wind is properly called katabatic. This normally happens by night, when surface cooling cools the air and makes it more dense, so it flows down.
