This website is an awesome, finely-curated one-stop shop on surface currents of the World Ocean. It is accessible both to the regional oceanographer seeking a refresher on a particular current system and the high-schooler doing their science project. The frequent visitors (as the Guest Book shows) would certainly benefit from more updates.

Thanks for providing the useful information about Agulhas Current. But I find the 'seasonal variability (http://www.soc.soton.ac.uk/RSADU/Agul.html)' can not be opened and it shows 'Not found'.

Excellent description of the loop current. I would like to know what is the position of the loop current in the GOM right now. That is it penetrating into the Northern part of the Gulf or is it just off of Dry Tortugas

I was researching the currents off NW Brazil to ascertain whether it was feasible to conduct a marine seismic survey offshore with seismic streamers, which of course would be greatly affected by strong currents. The information on your website was very useful.

Thanks for this write up. I often wonder what would happen to the Gulf, the Loop current and the Gulf Stream if this Yucatan Passage was magically blocked by some human construct (wall or dike). Would a new channel be cut through Cuba?

Found the article extremely informative. As someone who studied marine zoology at university, I am naturally curious as to the species found in the region and why they are there. My specialist knowledge is in the north Sea, but having seen some photos of south Miami beach, was curious to obtain some knowledge re: the currents in that area.

Keep at it! This is a terrific site, when complete will be valuable in my team's work (include grad students and undergrads) to study the relation between surface currents and marine biodiversity patterns.

Phenomenal, keep sharing and studying. I'm interested in countercurrents as drivers moving mainland water masses from S FL down through Biscayne NP to the Upper Keys (and beyond). Data on drifters, tracers or indicators of water that may be transporting pathogens.
