Ocean currents are the horizontal continuous flow of a mass of water from one place to another. They are driven by numerous factors like differences in density and temperature, planetary winds etc. The redistribution of the ocean water through the movement of deep ocean current is a continuous process and it takes around 500 years to complete one cycle of redistribution of ocean water.
