2 Horizontal movement of ocean water that is caused by wind and that occurs at or near the ocean’s surface
3 What are surface currents?
4 Global winds, coriolois effect, and continental deflections.
5 What causes surface currents?
6 When surface currents meet the continents they change direction.
7 What is continental deflections?
8 Are surface currents generally warm or cold currents?
10 Near the equator winds blow this direction.
11 What is East to West?
12 Do winds directly control deep currents yes or no?
14 A streamlike movement of ocean water far below the surface.
15 What are deep currents?
16 The density of ocean water is affected by these two things.
17 Water are temperature and salinity?
18 As temperature increases this happens to the density.
19 What is density decreases?
20 Are deep currents generally warm or cold?
22 The Gulf Stream carries this type of current from the Tropics to the North Atlantic Ocean.
23 What are warm currents?
24 The California Current carries this type of current from the North Pacific Ocean southward towards Mexico.
25 What is cold current?
26 These are three disasters caused by El Nino.
27 What are flash floods, mudslides, and droughts?
28 This is how often The El Nino occurs.
29 What is every 2 to 12 years?
30 This is the name of the administration that operates buoys that record ocean temperatures.
31 What is NOAA or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration?
32 A movement of ocean water that follows a regular pattern.
33 What are ocean currents?
34 A streamlike movement of ocean water far below the surface.
35 What are deep currents?
36 A change in the water temperature in the Pacific Ocean that produces a warm current.
37 What is El Nino?
38 The transfer of thermal energy by the circulation or movement of a liquid or a gas.
39 What is convection?
40 The wind blows off the land toward the water. When the temperature over the water is greater than the temperature over the land.
41 What is land breeze?
42 Horizontal movement of ocean water that is caused by wind and that occurs at or near the ocean’s surface
43 What are surface currents
44 The apparent curving of the path of a moving object from an otherwise straight path due to the Earth’s rotation.
45 What is the coriolis effect?
46 A change in the eastern Pacific Ocean in which the surface water temperature becomes unusually cool.
47 What is La Nina?
48 A measure of the amount of dissolved salts or solids in a liquid.
49 What is salinity?
50 The wind blows off the water toward the land. When the temperature over land is greater than the temperature over water.
51 What is Sea Breeze?
Ocean Currents S6E3d Explain the causes of waves, currents, and tides.

Surface & Deep Currents Chapter 14 Section 1. Bellringer How does the density of ocean water affect deep currents?
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.
Unit 10 Lesson 5 Ocean Currents
Surface Currents and Deep Currents
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.
Currents and Climate.
6th Grade Earth Science Sutton Middle School
Preview Section 1 Currents Section 2 Currents and Climate
Ocean Currents Text Book Page #
Ocean Currents Streamlike movements of water.. Surface Currents Streamlike movements of water that occur at or near the surface of the ocean.
Currents and Climate By Lindsey Harnack & Reid Harm.
What causes wind? The uneven heating of Earth’s surface by the sun causes temperature differences in air. Warm air rises, creating areas of low pressure.
Chapter 14 – The Movement of Ocean Water Ocean Currents – The stream like movement of water in the oceans that are influenced by many factors. Thor Heyerdahl.
The Movement of Ocean water Carin Miranda Fall 2012 Smyrna Middle School 6B.
Atmospheric movements We learned that energy is transferred from the Sun to the Earth creating convection currents. But, what type of currents???
