Journal of marine science research & development is one of the renowned top access journals in the field of oceanography. This journal is a top leading podium for gaining and exchanging knowledge about novel research done in the associated fields.
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.
OMICS Group is one of the top open access publishers maintaining Science journals Science Journals are multidimensional Open Access gateways for the exploration of scientific discoveries and new research in the medical and other sciences. These journals are periodical publications intended to communicate with the scientific community to further the progress of mankind. Science Journals represent the collaborative efforts of many scientists and scholars from various disciplines. Editorial Board Members and Reviewers actively participate in the review process and ensure the quality of the manuscripts.
