unit 3 lesson 5 sceince 6th grade 6 period

ocean currents 1.ocean currents are stream like movements of water in the ocean. 2.surface currents are ocean currents that occur at or near the surface of the ocean. 3.the gulf steam is a surface current.
surface currents 1.surface currents are affected by continental deflections, the Coriolis effect, and global winds. 2.when surface currents meet continents they are deflected and change direction. 3.the deflection of moving objects from a straight path due to earths rot
surface currents 1.the major source of energy that powers surface currents is the sun. 2.the causes differences in temperature across earth which causes differences in air pressure. 3.winds form as a result of differences in air pressure and creates surface currents.
deep currents 1. deep currents are movement of ocean waters below the surface caused by differences in density. 2.density is the amount of matter in a given space or volume. 3.salinity and temperature cause differing ocean water densities. 4.salinity is a measure of
