Address: Beach Drive, Seaside, OR , United States Reservation Line: or   Did you know that ocean currents were discovered from reading the BIBLE? Thereafter, he devoted his time to the study of naval meteorology, navigation, charting the winds and currents, seeking the "Paths of the Seas" mentioned in Psalm 8 in the Bible.

  Rip currents are narrow channels of water that form when waves of different intensities break on the shoreline and generate currents that keep the water level by pulling the large amounts of water brought in by the waves, back into the ocean. These currents can move faster than an Olympic swimmer at speeds of m per second, and as this moves. Surface currents –affected by wind patterns, usually penetrate no deeper than m World Ocean Currents – • Movement of water by wind: equatorial currents. • Deflection off land coastal boundary currents Eastern and Western Boundary California Current and Gulf stream. • After water piles up, needs to go somewhere: counter Size: 62KB.

  Indian Ocean Currents Indian ocean is half an ocean, hence the behavior of the North Indian Ocean Currents is different from that of Atlantic Ocean Currents or the Pacific Ocean Currents. Also, monsoon winds in Northern Indian ocean are peculiar to the region, which directly influence the ocean surface water movement. Indian Ocean Currents and Monsoons The currents in the northern . The sun's rays are hitting the earth but unevenly because the earth is tilted on an axis so the equator gets most of the rays. As the water heats up, the air above it heats up and the molecules begin to seperate and rise at the equator.

Remarks on the winds, the tides, and the currents, of the ocean, with other phenomena by Martin White Download PDF EPUB FB2

Get this from a library. Remarks on the winds, tides, and currents of the ocean: with other phenomena under the sanction of Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty.

[Martin White]. Around his retirement from naval service in he authored the work Remarks on the winds, tides, and currents of the ocean: with other phenomena. His promotion to Admiral may post retirement may have been for the purposes of increasing his pension, though when he died in three years after his wife he left a relatively small personal Battles/wars: Napoleonic wars.

This is ocean current. The reason we have currents in the ocean is a bit more complicated. Let's go back to the shoreline to witness one cause of ocean currents.

Tides. Tidal Currents. Tidal currents are strongest near the shore, in bays, and Remarks on the winds estuaries along our coasts. This illustration will give you an idea of how this works. In Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean, writer, sailor, and surfer Jonathan White takes readers across the globe to discover the science and spirit of ocean the Arctic, White shimmies under the ice with an Inuit elder to hunt for mussels in the dark cavities left behind at low tide; in China, he races the Silver Dragon, a twenty-five-foot tidal bore that crashes eighty miles up /5().

A change in atmospheric pressure (and thus in wind direction). Usually trade winds blow from high pressure areas (eastern Pacific) to low pressure areas (western pacific) during oscillation these pressure areas change location, causing the winds to then blow from west to east.

Trade winds weaken or reverse. Start studying Currents, Waves, and Tides. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. water the temperature of ocean water decreases the water becomes more dense and sinks creating deep ocean currents.

is the largest and most powerful warm surface current in the North Atlantic Ocean, caused by. The tides there range from m (11ft) to 16m (53ft) and cause erosion, creating massive cliffs. This erosion also releases nutrients into the water that help support marine life. Currents associated with the tides are called flood currents (incoming tide) and ebb currents (outgoing tide).

On the other hand, I have read a lot of books on tides, and this does an admirable job in explaining the technical details. And, while I am not a fisherman, the author's discussion of the tides and fishing was the best I have ever read, clearly written by someone who knows and practices what he by: 9.

Oceanography and meteorology are at odds with physics on this one. For some unknown reason they seem to think that there is no net lunar effect in the picture. I'm actually astounded by the. Global winds drag on the water’s surface, causing it to move and build up in the direction that the wind is blowing.

And just as the Coriolis effect deflects winds to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere, it also results in the deflection of major surface ocean currents to the right in the Northern Hemisphere (in a clockwise spiral) and to the left.

In order to account for the motions of the winds and other phenomena, Lieutenant Maury advances the theory that there is a crossing of the winds or currents at the calm-belts of the equator and the parallels of 28°; that the currents flowing at the surface towards the equator, cross there, each becoming the upper current in the other.

The currents may have different origins. They can be due to the combined action of winds and atmospheric pressure differences or be triggered by tides.

They can depend on the differences in density of the seawater, which could be caused by for example, different heating of the various parts of the oceans and by different values of salinity.

Another way to take advantage of ocean tides is to tap into tidal currents, which run close to the shore at water depths of about 65 to feet (20 to 30 meters). To do this, power companies use turbines resembling those seen on terrestrial wind farms, except they are oriented so. Currents are responsible for circulating water throughout the earth's oceans.

This lesson will discuss surface ocean currents, deep water ocean currents, and the forces that drive them. Winds are able to move the top meters of the ocean creating surface ocean currents.

Surface currents are mostly caused by the w ind because it creates friction as it moves over the : A. Balasubramanian. Ocean tides are caused by three primary factors: the gravitation of the moon, the gravitation of the sun and the motion of the earth.

The earth's rotation creates a centrifugal force that interacts with the gravitational influences of the sun and moon. Water movement itself also contributes. Remarks on the winds, tides, and currents of the ocean with other phenomena. by Martin White 1 edition - first published in Not in Library.

It is evident by looking out into the ocean that the waters never stand still, however, how they move cannot always be seen from the surface. Ocean currents occur in two major forms: surface currents and deep currents.

Surface currents are created by the wind.Tides is the result of the rotation of the Earth and whirlpools. The opening was published in the Russian-German scientific peer-reviewed journal "Eastern European Scientific Journal" No.
