Gulf stream current from space
"Water, you are life. You fill us with a joy
that is not of the senses..."
The Gulf Stream Current
The Gulf Stream current is changing life on Earth!|
Earth's ocean currents move ocean water around the globe.
Different forces are causing this flow:
Different ocean depth
Different shoreline depth
That is Earth before the Gulf Stream current had warmed up Europe.
The most important current to Earth is the Gulf Stream, which makes northwest Europe much more temperate than any other region at the same latitude.
And it is lowering the sea level at the East cost of America significantly.
The Gulf stream started a long time ago, when Panama rose up and closed the gap between North and South America.
This is the official map of US-postmaster Benjamin Franklin of the gulf stream current, changing the routes seafarers took from and to Europe.
That is a map from the warmest point of the Gulf stream,
in the Gulf of Mexico.
As we wrote on the top: Currents are driven by many factors. Two important one are salinity and temperature.
The ice in the Arctic has no salt = salinity of melted ice is close to zero.
Ice reflects sunlight, the ocean water stays cool.
NASA satellites show that Arctic sea ice is melting very fast, faster than ever before,
changing salinity and temperature of the ocean water in that region...
What will happen to the Gulf Stream current?
What will happen to the ocean level at the US East coast?
What will happen to Europe - will it be ice-covered again? (see graphic above)
Where will all the people go?

Conservation Education (CE) is the combination of two words that have become one word to educators.
CE is the ability to give people opportunities to grow in knowledge and create changes to their life style and their environment,to have a better life, to have a safer future!
