These are tropical cyclones. The name is from the western hemisphere.
When wind blows offshore and pushes away warm surface water so colder deep waters come up to replace them.
This is an area near the equator where win stops because the Hadley Cells meet.
These are what tropical cyclones are called in the Eastern Hemisphere.
These boundary currents have warm waters, run fast, deep, narrow and tend to have eddies.
These are where to air cells meet.
When wind blows onshore and pushes warm surfaces waters down off the land and back into the deep ocean.
These are the currents that occur between 0-400 meters.
These effect the currents by pushing on the water from above.
Down
This effect helps create the spin we see in air cells and the circular patter of gyres.
These are weather patters caused by hot air rising off of land and cool moist air from the ocean moving in to replace it. They bring heavy seasonal rains.
These currents occur at the equator because of backflow caused by lack of wind in the doldrums.
These are found near 30 degrees where the Hadley and Ferrel Cells meet. Seas next to these dry areas tend to have high salinity.
These boundary currents tend to be cool, wide, slow, shallow and not have eddies.
These are the major circular currents. There are five, one for each major ocean basin.
This is the name for the storms caused by extratropical cyclones.
These storms are caused when rising warm wind is drawn into an area of low pressure and twists around on itself.
