  • Ocean Currents
  • What are Ocean Currents?
  • What causes water to move in the ocean?
  • By: Noelle Cordell-Skillman, Carly MacCormack, Delanie Lombard, and Audrey Garland Science Dave Class 2017-2018
  • What is the effects of currents on living things?
  • Ocean Currents are the movement of water in the ocean from one place to another.
  • What happens to the life on Earth if the water stops moving?
  • There are two different types of ocean currents; surface, and deep water. Wind is what causes surface circulation/currents. Temperature, salinity variations, gravity, and other things like earthquakes is what causes deep water currents.
  • The End
  • Currents go through the process of upwelling which is basically when currents go through the flow circulation and come from the bottom up. Since nutrients and food that organisms need are at sea floor level, when the currents upwell, the food flows more towards the surface.
  • If water stopped moving on Earth, many organisms that live in the oceans would not be able to get some of the nutrients they need. Which would mean that they could possibly die. There would also be a large impact on agriculture due to climate change.
