Ocean Currents S6E3d Explain the causes of waves, currents, and tides.Chapter 14 section 1 Ocean Currents S6E3d Explain the causes of waves, currents, and tides.
Surface currents are caused byFloods Warm water The wind The equator
Ocean currents in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres turnFrom west to east In opposite directions Clockwise Against the Earth’s rotation
Which process increases the salinity of ocean water?The Coriolis effect Convection currents Evaporation Continental deflection
Deep currents form whenCold air decreases water density Warm air increases water density The ocean surface freezes and solids from the warmer underneath Salinity increases
Compared with surface currents, deep currents area. Colder and less dense b. Warmer and less dense c. Warmer and denser d. Colder and denser
Which phrase describes a surface current?Gets cool near the equator Flows like a stream Stretches from north to south Creates global winds
How does the Coriolis effect make ocean currents appear to move?Back and forth In a curved path Clockwise Against the Earth’s rotation
Which continent deflects the Gulf Stream Current?North America South America Africa Asia
What replaces a cold current that sinks to the ocean floor?Colder deep current A warmer surface current A colder surface current A slower surface current
What is the name of the ocean current that warms the British Isles?La Nina California Current Gulf Stream Equatorial Countercurrent
What is used by the NOAA to collect data to predict an El Nino?Buoys Satellites California Current Sonar
The movement of cold, nutrient-rich water to the surface of the ocean is called______.warm-water currents cold-water currents stream upwelling
It all begins with the sun……
Oceans and Climate Changes
Bellringer Make sure you record today’s date, the question and your answer. If there were no land on Earth’s surface, what would the pattern of surface.
Warm-up January 30 Name a physical feature on dry land that is similar to the Mid-Ocean Ridge. Volcanoes, Mountains, Trenches.
Vertical temperature change ● Temperature – there are 3 temperature zones in the ocean. ● Surface to 200 meters – warmed by the Sun. ● Thermocline: 200.

Ocean Currents “Rivers in the Ocean”. Currents Current – a large stream of moving water that flows through the ocean. Capable of moving large amounts.
