Because of the spinning of the Earth, wind and ocean currents closest to the equator will travel straighter. Wind and ocean currents further from the equator will deflect away from the equator.Ê
the coriolis effect.
It causes them to deviate (different directions north and south of the equator) leading to the Coriolis effect.
The Coriolis effect.
The Coriolis Effect
Because of the Coriolis effect, surface ocean currents are deflected to the ________ of their path of motion in the Northern Hemisphere.
bend and curve
Glocal winds: they occur when different winds cause currents to flow in different directions. The coriolis effect: The apparent curving of the path of a moving object from an otherwise straight path due to the Earth's rotation. Continental deflections: When surface currents meet continents, the currents deflect, or change direction.
By, instead of a straight current, makes the current curved due to the Coriolis Effect.
the Coriolis effect.
Continental deflections,the Coriolis effect and global winds all effect surface ocean currents.
The three factors which control surface currents are the following:Global windsContinental deflection and temperatureThe Coriolis effect

Because of the Influence of the Coriolis Effect, the general motion of surface currents in the north Atlantic is to the right. In the south Atlantic the general motion is to the left.
wind.Surface currants form by global winds, Coriolis effect (earth's rotation) and continental deflections (surface currents meet continents they change direction).
Surface currents are caused by the friction of wind on the water. The currents are also affected by the Coriolis Effect, which is the apparent deflection of objects moving in a straight path relative to the earth's surface.
global winds, Coriolis effect, and continental deflection
I think clockwise...
Factors that set surface ocean currents into motions are the global circulation cells (Hadley, Ferrel, Polar), the Coriolis effect, and the continental deflection.
It causes the currents to move in curved paths instead of going in a straight line, which is known a the Coriolis effect.
Coriolis effect global winds and continental deflections are all factors that control surface currents.
