Journal of marine science research & development is one of the top and best leading journals in the field of oceanography which publishes novel research articles on aquaculture, fisheries and on Ocean Currents etc. The articles after rigorous peer-review process with at least 2 expert reviewers, the article will be on to open access flow.
Ocean current is any more or less permanent or continuous, directed movement of ocean water that flows in one of the Earth's oceans. Ocean currents are mainly generated from the forces acting upon the water like the earthâs rotation and the moons gravitation forces. Ocean currents flow for thousands of kilometers which help in determining the climate of the continents. A part of oceanography is the science studying ocean currents.
Ocean currents can together create the great flow of the global conveyor belt which plays a dominant part in determining the climate of many of the Earthâs positions.
Ocean currents occur through vertical or horizontal movement of both surface and deep water throughout the worldâs oceans. Currents normally move in a specific direction and aid significantly in the circulation of the Earthâs moisture, the resultant weather, and water pollution. These currents, which flow under the surface of the ocean and are thus hidden from immediate detection, are called submarine rivers.
Oceanic currents are mainly found all over the globe and vary in size to size and strength. Some of the more prominent currents include the California and Humboldt Currents in the Pacific, the Gulf Stream and Labrador Current in the Atlantic, and the Indian Monsoon Current in the Indian Ocean. These are just a sampling of the seventeen major surface currents found in the worldâs oceans.
