Surface ocean currents Surface currents are extremely important because they distribute heat around the planet and are a major factor influencing climate around the globe.

Winds drive currents that are at or near the ocean's surface. Near coastal areas winds tend to drive currents on a localized scale and can result in phenomena like coastal upwelling. On a more global scale, in the open ocean, winds drive currents that circulate water for thousands of miles throughout the ocean basins.
