How do I figure the Gulf Stream velocity to knots?
if i am not mistaken gul stream's velocity is 4 mph
1 mile = 0.868976242
if you multiply that number by 4, you should get 3.47590496 knots,
Hope this helpes!
part of a clockwise-setting ocean-current system in the North Atlantic Ocean, extending from southeast of the Grand Bank, off Newfoundland, Canada, to the Norwegian Sea, off northwestern Europe. It constitutes the northeastward extension of the Gulf Stream; the latter issues from the Gulf of Mexico and gradually emerges as the North Atlantic Current in mid-ocean. It is composed of several broad currents with speeds of about 0.2 knots, as compared with the Gulf Stream's rather…
The Gulf Stream is a warm surface ocean current which originates in the Gulf of Mexico and flows northeast across the Atlantic, driven by the prevailing southwest winds. It influences the climate of the UK and Northwest Europe. The Gulf Stream is one of the strongest currents known anywhere in the world. Without the warm Gulf Stream, the UK and other places in Europe would be as cold as Canada, at the same latitude.
