  20. 20. Effect - distribution of heat(- conduction, convection) - distribution of nutrients effected by: - surface rate - vertical movement - upwelling - distribution of gases - distribution of spores, sex cellsGeneration of Waves 1. caused by wind (meteorological) 2. caused by tide (gravitational pull ) 3. earthquake and land slide (geologic)Waves Result from: 1. Deflection of wind as it blows over the surface 2. changes in atmospheric pressure

  26. 26. Currents Horizontal current – wind driven ( westernlies, easterlies, trade winds) Caused by prevailing wind patterns Deep Vertical Currents C-slope, C-rise and abyssal plain (the result of salinity and temperature gradient) Air - mixture of different kinds of gases Process; First;Equator and at warmer latitudes, heated air expands and rises Later:  Low pressure area is produced and cooled air moves  Rising air is carried north or south of the equator and eventually cools, contracts and sinks, creating a high pressure area
  27. 27. Deflection of air masses : to the right in N. Hemisphere and to the left in S. Hemisphere due to Coriolis effect because of the spinning of the planet.Easterly Tradewind - produces the equatorial current EQ Current : North – western B. current Eastwind - Western Trade windVertical Currents Upwelling/Downwelling Caused by: 1. halocline/thermocline (salinity/density and temperature grdient) 2. Offshore winds – push the surface and cause the deep water to move to the surface.
  28. 28. 3. Divergence – produced when deep water and surface current interaction occurs that is possible when currents pass through another current4. Wake strain – nearby water surface is pulled along with a strong current5. Turbulence – due to rapid current passing over shallow and rough benthos
