Phase 1: Research of Ocean and Tidal Currents Worldwide

Ocean currents are located at the ocean surface and in deep water below 300 meters (984 feet). They can move water horizontally and vertically and occur on both local and global scales. The ocean has an interconnected current, or circulation, system powered by wind, tides, the Earth's rotation, the sun, and water density differences.
