Dear Students,

Please go through the following notes and then watch the video and take notes and show it to me by tomorrow:

Ocean Currents: An ocean current is like a vast river within the ocean, flowing from one place to another. These currents are caused by differences in temperature, differences in salinity, and by wind. Currents are responsible for a vast amount of movement of the water found in the Earth’s oceans.

So another factor that can warm a particular location is ocean currents. For example, the Gulf Stream warms certain areas of Western Europe, meaning that they have more temperate or moderate climates than other areas of the same latitude.
