    Some questions in "Oceanography of Currents" involve climatology and how waves and currents affect the weather, geology, plate tectonics, and many other related topics.

    Some reasons we look at "Oceanography of Currents" include predict areas of interest relating to sustainable agriculture, prediction of major events that may affect large populations, and to better understand weather patterns over the globe.
