Hard to understand[edit]

This article is so full of jargon, it is not understandable to the casual reader. Recommend explaining all the foundational facts/concepts before introducing them into general discussion. Oldsneekers 2/4/2012 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.232.30.221 (talk) 15:05, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

A more qualitative explanation is needed. Something that is more informative than "the western current is stronger than the eastern current", yet doesn't require one to know the details of curl, Sverdrup transport, and potential vorticity (especially since those articles are written in the same technically dense style).

Cold water from higher latitudes to lower latitudes[edit]

  • If we consider oceanic currents as surface currents, it is very difficult to think that cold waters from high latitudes could arrive at tropical latitudes, since they must cross warm waters like the ones in the Gulf of Mexico Current and some others.
  • If we consider deep currents coming from high to low latitudes, it is even more difficult to explain their travel, since deep waters move along de litosphere because of the enormous weight they have to support. I strongly believe that underwater currents are almost nonsenses. --Fev 00:29, 26 June 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fev (talkcontribs)
