  1. a The length of time the wind blows, the fetch and this are three factors that affect wind wave development.
  2. b Which direction do gyres flow in the Northern hemisphere?
  3. c the regular rise and fall of the ocean's surface influenced by the moon's gravity pulling on earth
  4. d Eddies do not tend to form in these boundary currents.
  5. e Nearly friction free transfer of energy from molecule to molecule in a circular path.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a wave in which water oscillates without causing progressive wave forward movement. there is no net transmission of energy in a standing wave
  2. Maximum ratio of wave height to wavelength seen in the open ocean. Also known as wave steepness.
  3. Gyres in balance between gravity and the Coriolis Effect.
  4. Waves transmit _______________.
  5. These waves tend to be less than 3m high, and have wavelengths between 60 - 150m in the ocean.

5 True/False questions

  1. EasternThe Gulf Stream is an example of this type of boundary current.


  2. SemidiurnalEddies do not tend to form in these boundary currents.


  3. GyreCircular flow pattern of water caused by deflection of water by continents and the ocean basin.


  4. CounterclockwiseWhich direction do gyres flow in the Southern hemisphere?


  5. Wave FrequencyThe reflection of progressive waves by a vertical barrier. Reflection occurs with little loss of energy.
