Modern Climate Systems Ocean circulation The Great Ocean Conveyor Sinking cool water, rising warm water and wind help to form global ocean current systems.
What is the Greenhouse Effect? The temperature of the Earth depends on the amount of energy we receive from the sun versus the amount of energy lost back out to space.
