What Causes Ocean Currents?
By: Grant Reese
Three Things I Learned
Deep ocean currents can be varied based on salinity and temperature differences. The deep ocean currents can be completely different the the surface ocean currents, because the wind cannot reach all the way down to the deep parts of the ocean.
Deep ocean currents can carry nutrients, oxygen, and heat with them. These deep ocean currents patterns are changed by the salinity and temperature differences.
Does the direction of the currents make the animals change the direction they are moving so they can swim easier with the current.
