An ocean current is more or less permanent or continuous, directed movement of ocean water that flows in one of the Earth's oceans. Ocean current is the directed movement of the ocean water by virtue of the forces like wind, earth's rotation, gravitation of the moon etc.
Ocean currents flow for great distances, and together, create the global conveyor belt which plays a dominant role in determining the climate of many of the Earth’s regions. More specifically, ocean currents influence the temperature of the regions through which they travel. For example, warm currents traveling along more temperate coasts increase the temperature of the area by warming the sea breezes that blow over them.
