Geography Picture of the Day - Formation of the Gulf Stream
I have spent some time this afternoon trying to create a way of representing the formation and journey of the Gulf Stream with minimal text. I am really bad at writing succintly so this has been a bit of a challenge and there is still way too much text on it, but I thought I would share it with you all anyway (any feedback on it would be great!) as I think, when it comes to the climate module, we do have to know a little bit about ocean circulation and this particular current, along with the North Atlantic Deep Water (NADW), play an influential role in moderating our climate.
