They termed the original definition ‘conventional current’ so as not to confuse it with the newer definition of current.
When so defined the current is called conventional current.
This joins the Guinea Current to re-form the Atlantic South Equatorial Current.
In the Indian Ocean the place of a north equatorial current is taken by the Monsoon Current.
The branching of this current in the region of 160° E results in the movement known as the North Pacific Current.
The heat loss, or energy dissipated, by electric current in a conductor is proportional to the square of the current.
Tsushima Current, surface oceanic current, the northeastward-flowing branch of the Kuroshio along the west coast of Japan.
This current is slightly north of the geographic Equator, drawing the northern fringe of the South Equatorial Current to 5°…
The original definition is now referred to as 'conventional current', to avoid confusion with the newer definition of current.
…directed toward the west, the North Equatorial Current in the Northern Hemisphere and the South Equatorial Current in the Southern Hemisphere.
Guiana Current, surface oceanic current, a northwest-flowing branch of the Atlantic South Equatorial Current along the northern coast of South America.
Oya Current, Japanese Oya-shio, also called Kuril Current, surface oceanic current flowing southwest along the Kamchatka Peninsula and the Kuril Islands.
The current system at the eastern boundary of the ocean is undeveloped, but the West Australian Current flowing north from the South Indian Current closes the gyre to a certain extent.
…50° S as the warm South Pacific Current; between 80° and 90° W this flow turns northward and then westward as the Mentor Current, the waters eventually returning to the South Equatorial Current.
In the North Pacific the subpolar gyre is composed of the northward-flowing Alaska Current, the Aleutian Current (also known as the Subarctic Current), and the southward-flowing cold Oyashio Current.
Aleutian Current, also called Subarctic Current, surface oceanic current, an eastward-flowing mixture of the Kuroshio (Japan Current) and the Oya Current, located between the Aleutian Islands and latitude 42° N.
In the South Atlantic the southward flowing warm current along the east coast of South America is called the Brazil Current, and the northward flowing cold current along the west coast of southern Africa is the Benguela Current.
This flow, known as the Kuro Current, moves north as far as Japan, then east as the North Pacific Current (West Wind Drift), part of which then turns south as the California Current, which joins the equatorial countercurrent to form the Pacific North Equatorial Current.
Such currents are found in the Tasmanian Sea, where the southward-flowing East Australian Current generates counterclockwise circulation, in the northwestern Pacific, where the eastward-flowing Kuroshio–North Pacific current causes counterclockwise circulation in the Alaska Current and Aleutian Current (or Subarctic Current), in the Bay of Bengal, and in the Arabian Sea.
- occurring in or belonging to the present time
Example: current events
- a flow of electricity through a conductor
Example: the current was measured in amperes
- a steady flow of a fluid (usually from natural causes)
Example: the raft floated downstream on the current
- dominant course (suggestive of running water) of successive events or ideas
