Abstract: A model of accretion-disk winds in Active Galactic Nuclei has been developed that includes radiative and magnetic acceleration of a continuous wind with embedded clouds. The model is used to explore the interaction of these components and is here applied to geometrically thin winds indicated in recent observations. The solutions show that radiative acceleration can significantly alter the geometry of magnetic winds in possibly observable ways. Such interaction may point the way to explaining AGN unification models.
