The cause of ocean currents

“What exactly causes ocean currents?”

 

When someone says the word ocean, what do you picture in your mind? Most people probably think of deep blue waves crashing against a beach with more grains of sand than stars in the universe. However, a scientist will think just a tad bit differently. Instead of being limited by immediate sensory perception, they will try to understand the underlying reason of what causes the ocean currents. If this scientist gives in to this curiosity, then they will find out that such disturbances in fact have two possible causes, one form the winds and the coriolis effect and another from internal temperature differences.
