Gyres circle huge areas found in the middle of the ocean. Unlike coastal zones, these central regions are relatively stable; the ocean water stays in one place and does not circulate. The force of the Earths wind patterns creates ocean surface currents. Gyres are caused by the Coriolis Effect; planetary vorticity along with horizontal and vertical friction, which determine the circulation patterns from the wind curl (torque). The Coriolis effect also has an influence on ocean currents. The Coriolis effect is a force created by the rotation of the Earth. The force deflects the direction of the ocean current at a 45-degree angle. This deflection pushes the ocean currents into a clockwise motion in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere, the ocean currents are pushed into a counterclockwise motion.
Journal of Vortex Science and Technology is one of the top journals in Gyres. It publishes the original research and reviews on applied research and applications of vortex principles. Physical and mathematical grounds are also described and the formula for the determination of the space is also quoted in articles of this journal.
OMICS International journals have over 15 million readers with strong editorial board which contains over 50,000+ editorial board members that ensure a rapid, quality and quick review process. Journal of Vortex Science and Technology is one of the top journals of OMICS group which contributes emerging research in the area of related to the physics, dynamics, and chemistry of the atmosphere of Earth and other planets, with emphasis on the quantitative and deductive aspects of the subject.
