3 big ideas I have learned
- Oceanic currents are driven by several tides, one of them is the raise and fall of the tides; which are driven by gravity from the sun and moon on Earth's oceans
- Tides create currents in the oceans; that are near the shore and in bays and estuaries along the coast, those tides are called "tidal currents." Tidal currents are the only type of currents that change in a very regular pattern and can be predicted for future dates.
- Winds drive currents near the costal areas on a localized scale
2 questions I still have
- How can Thermohaline circulation create tides?
- How can Tidal Currents be predicted for future dates?
