  • Description:
    The video is part of the Ocean Today educational video collection (sub-collection: marine life). It is with open captions and can be viewed in regular (640 x 36) or high resolution (1280 x 720). Video's transcript: "Well, stop the presses! We've got some news that's definitely current! Did you know there's massive southern ocean current almost two miles below the ocean's surface? Incredible! Recent measurements found it's the strongest current ever recorded at this depth -- transporting 40 times as much water as the Amazon river! My, that's hard to swallow! The current carries dense, oxygen-rich water that sinks near Antarctica to the deep basins of the Indian and Pacific oceans. Scientists say this current is an important component of the global ocean "conveyor belt," which pushes water from the ocean surface to the deep ocean and back again. This has a direct influence on temperatures around the world. So, to truly understand the global network of currents that influence our climate, you literally need to scratch below the surface. And that's your news of the day!"
