The North Atlantic Ocean is a complex mix of currents that twist and wind around each other. The vast area that is covered by the Atlantic results in a wide variation in conditions both above and below the water. These conditions create and direct the movement of water throughout the massive body of water that is the Atlantic Ocean.
