The term for the time it takes each wave crest to pass a certain point is called

wave period

What unusual event occurs during El Nino

The pressure gradient decreases. The trade winds weaken, or even blow backwards.

Why is the bottom layer of the ocean the coldest

Cold water sinks, while warm water rises.

What causes deep-water currents

Temperature differences in water

What are the Calm areas between the trade winds and the equatorial zone

The doldrums. Also known as the equatorial calms.

In what way does ocean water move globally

Along cold water currents from the poles to the equator.

What is an effect of La Nia

Mr poppins is coming

What unusual pattern occurs during El Nino

The trade winds weaken, or even blow backwards.

Why do oceanographers take measurements of the conductivity of the seawater

Conductivity can be used to calculate the salinity of the water.

Which of these zones is also known as the midnight zone

Bathypelagic

What should you do when your best friend's best friend keeps saying rude things to you

I would have assumed that your best friend's best friend was you. If this is not the case, I would tell them to go away and stop bothering me (using slightly stronger language which shouldn't be repeated here).

By using information about the temperature and salinity of ocean water oceanographers can determine the

density

The term for the distance over which wind blows uninterrupted is called what

fetch

How do waves change as they approach the shore-

Swell "feels" bottom (half the wavelength), circular water particles change to flattened eclipses. Wavelength slows down, but period remains the same, wave becomes too high for its wavelength. Crest moves ahead of the base b/c of a 3:4 ratio of wave height to water depth and breaks.

What is the difference of the causes between a sea breeze and a land breeze

The only difference - is the direction of flow. A sea breeze blows from the sea onto the land. A land breeze flows in the opposite direction.

Which statement is true of jet streams

The polar jet stream lies between the polar easterlies and trade winds
