Currents & Climate Earth’s Waters Chapter 4.4 Pages 134-140
Go With the Flow Currents:Currents: a large stream of moving water that flows through the ocean –Carry water great distances –Occur at varying depths
Surface Currents Surface currents affect water to a depth of several hundred meters –Driven mainly by wind Coriolis EffectMove in circular pattern due to Coriolis Effect, caused by Earth’s rotation.
Deep Currents Deep Currents are caused by differences in density, not wind 1.Warm surface water flows to poles 2.Cools and sinks 3.Flows back towards equator.
Climate ClimateClimate is the pattern of temperature and precipitation typical of an area over a long period of time Currents affect climate by cooling / warming air above them.
Upwelling UpwellingUpwelling is the upward movement of cold water from the deep Caused when wind pushes warm surface water away Deep water brings with it valuable nutrients.
Ocean Currents What Are Currents? Current: a large stream of moving water that flows through the oceans. Currents carry water over very long distances.
Unit 2.4: Currents and Tides. Vocabulary: 1.Current: a large stream of moving water that flows through oceans Unlike waves, currents carry water from.

Ocean Currents “Rivers in the Ocean”. Currents Current – a large stream of moving water that flows through the ocean. Capable of moving large amounts.
A stream of moving particles Can be identified as: ◦ Surface ◦ Deep.

Ocean Currents. Objective Ocean currents are cause by unequal heating and differences in salinity. The currents distribute heat around the planet.
Chapter 4. Wave Action A wave is the movement of energy through a body of water. Most waves form when winds blowing across the water’s surface transmit.

Ocean Currents. Ocean currents are streams of water that can move millions of cubic meters of water per second. Ocean currents are streams of water that.
Ocean Currents Objective: Objective: How does the temperature affect the ocean’s currents?
Ocean Current Poster. Ocean currents Driven By Wind they move warm water away from the equator and cold water towards the equator. (Label warm currents.
Ocean Currents. Mass movement or flow of ocean water Mass movement or flow of ocean water River within the ocean (“Conveyor Belt”) River within the ocean.
OCEAN CURRENTS AND WEATHER. Oceans currents are created by: surface wind, corliolis effect, land shape, and salt content and temperature of the water.
Surface Currents (ocean) Affect water to a depth of several hundred meters Driven by winds Move in circular patterns in 5 major oceans. Because of Coriolis.
