9 effects of ocean current on human activities

An ocean current can be defined as a horizontal movement of seawater in the ocean. Ocean currents are driven by the circulation of wind above surface waters, interacting with evaporation, sinking of water at high latitudes, and the Coriolis force generated by the earth’s rotation.  The nature of ocean currents has influenced human activities in …

Four (4) effects of cold ocean currents

4 effects of cold ocean currents

An ocean current is a continuous, directed movement of the seawater generated by a number of forces acting upon the water, including wind, the Coriolis effect, breaking waves, cabbeling and temperature and salinity differences. depth contours, shoreline configuration, and interaction with other currents influence a current’s direction and strength. ocean currents are primarily horizontal water …

8 characteristics of cold ocean current

Cold ocean currents are ocean currents with waters of low temperature, i.e. the waters are cold. In Africa the main cold ocean currents include; the cold Benguella current and the cold canary current. Elsewhere examples include the Californian current, cold Peruvian current, the North equatorial current, East Greenland Current, and the West Australian current. The …

7 characteristics of warm ocean current

Warm ocean currents are ocean currents with warm waters and may include the warm Mozambique current or the warm Agulhas current or South equatorial current in Africa. Other warm currents include; the warm gulf stream, the North Atlantic drift, the North Pacific current, the Kuro siwo current, the East Australia Current, the Brazilian current, and …
