Ocean gyres

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - NEWS FEATURE -

The five ma­jor ocean gyres are lo­cated in the North At­lantic, South At­lantic, North Pa­cific, South Pa­cific and In­dian Ocean. They are caused by cir­cu­lar sys­tems of ocean cur­rents that form thanks to the Earth’s ro­ta­tion and wind pat­terns. Gyres help the flow of water around our planet.
