9 effects of ocean current on human activities

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 the …

Four (4) effects of cold ocean currents

4 effects of cold ocean currents

An ocean current is a continuous, directed movement of the sea water generated by 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 movements. …
