Environment:Deep Connections

  5points. 1comment

There's a number of factors that influence both the surface ocean currents and the deep ocean currents. On the surface, you have the wind blowing. Obviously, you don't have that on the deep ocean. But on the deep ocean, you have friction against the bottom, which you don’t have on the surface. Now, in both cases the Coriolis Effect, which is the way that things tend to go to the right in the northern hemisphere and if you push on them, that influences both the surface and the deep currents.
