A current could be a continuous, directed movement of ocean water generated by many forces acting upon the water, as well as wind, the upshot, breaking waves, cabling, and temperature and salinity variations. Depth contours, boundary configurations, and interactions with alternative currents influence a current's direction and strength. Ocean currents area unit primarily horizontal water movements. A current flow for nice distances and along they produce the world belt that plays a dominant role in deciding the climate of the many of Earth’s regions. A lot of specifically, ocean currents influence the temperature of the regions through that they travel. For instance, heat currents traveling on a lot of temperate coasts increase the temperature of the realm by warming the ocean breezes that go by them. Maybe the foremost hanging example is that the Gulf Stream, that makes northwest Europe rather more temperate than the other region at an equivalent latitude. Another example is capital of Peru, Peru, wherever the climate is cooler, being sub-tropical, than the tropical latitudes during which the realm is found, because of the Peruvian current.
