Look at the map of ocean currents and answer the following :
Which currents are absent in northern part of the Indian Ocean and why?
Ocean currents are the horizontal continuous flow of a mass of water from one place to another. They are of 2 types – warm and cold ocean current. The cold currents are absent in the northern part of the Indian Ocean. Cold ocean current flows from polar region to equator. The Indian Ocean is land-locked in the North. Hence, no cold current can enter the north part of the Indian ocean.
