  2. These waves travel though water deeper than 1/20 but shallower than 1/2 their wavelength
  3. Which direction do gyres flow in the Northern hemisphere?
  4. These boundary currents move warm water from the equator towards the poles.
  5. Nearly friction free transfer of energy from molecule to molecule in a circular path.

5 True/False Questions
