this begins at a depth of 200m and the temperature of the water drops at each layer thermocline
these currents move only the upper few hundred meters of the sea-water surface currents
a warm surface current that flows from Florida northeastward toward North Carolina Gulf Stream
this current forms when more dense seawater sinks below less dense seawater density current
a current in the ocean that brings deep, cold water to the ocean surface upwelling
