Comment on this resource
The friction produced by winds blowing towards the equator on the ocean's surface, together with the effect of the earth's rotation, cause water in the surface layer to move away from the western coast of continental land masses. This offshore moving water is replaced by water which upwells, or flows toward the surface from depths of 50 to 100 meters and more. Users can view an illustration and read ... Full description.

This poster shows how oceanic circulation helps to control global climate. In general, warm surface currents flow from the tropics to higher latitudes, driven mainly by winds and the Earth's rotation. Fast, warm surface currents like the Gulf Stream are concentrated at the western boundary of ocean basins. The poster is part of a collection of images associated with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory's ... Full description.
