Jan 14,  · The movements that occur in oceans are categorized as: waves, tides and currents. Waves are formed due to friction between wind and surface water layer. The stronger the wind, the bigger the wave. They die out quickly on reaching the shore or shallow waters. Effects of Ocean Currents. Waves and currents are different, but they work together. Learn more about the way waves and currents work with this activity!

It consists of 37 PPT slides that are colorful. Pictures and diagrams are included that will greatly enhance your explanation to your students/4(). EFFECTS OF UPPER-ATMOSPHERIC ELECTRIC FIELDS AND CURRENTS Electric fields and currents interact strongly with the upper atmosphere and help determine its behavior (e.g., Banks, ). The drifting ions, as they interact collisionally with neutral molecules, exert a force on the air and tend to bring it toward the ion motion.

Most people pass them by without a second thought, but if you want to enter the. May 15,  · To model sediment-induced gravity currents on shelves properly, the effect of ambient waves and currents must be included in the quadratic formulation of bottom stress.

Application of the classical Chezy equation to gravity currents observed here without consideration of ambient currents and waves yielded consistently erroneous results.

niarbylbaycafe.com by: Ocean models usually estimate surface currents without explicit modeling of the ocean waves. To consider the impact of waves on surface currents, here a wave model is used in a modified Ekman.

Aug 15,  · The ocean currents in Big Sur coastline is caused by the climatic condition of the region and the nature of the coastline. The prevailing winds and the rugged nature of the landmass causes the ocean water to move in a certain direction. The ocean currents in Big Sur have the following effects on the coastal region.
