Will the Gulf Stream Stop?
The Gulf Stream is, perhaps, the most important oceanic current for mankind of a planetary scale. It carries warm waters from the western equatorial part of the Atlantic Ocean (that is, from the east of Central America) — to the shores of Northern Europe as far as the White Sea. The warmth that makes it warm creates a climate favorable for people living in all the countries which are washed by it, including the Scandinavian region.
And — if the Gulf Stream stopped, then the climate in the whole of Northern Europe could become the same as, for example, in Chukchi Peninsula or in the north of Eastern Siberia.
And this topic is discussed at the level of the governments of the countries concerned; many scientists are involved in the relevant studies.
Discussions on this score were initiated in connection with the “fashion” in regards to “global warming”. Scientists measure the salinity of water in different parts of the Gulf Stream, fantasize about what will happen if the salinity of the water decreases due to the melting of ice in Greenland…
And for these studies are allocated considerable financial resources of interested states… Although is it not appropriate that at least one of the scientists, involved in these discussions and studies, would think about why this oceanic current exists at all? What is the reason for its existence? What makes colossal volumes of water continuously move for many thousands of kilometers?
The answer is simple, but to get it, it needs to tear eyes from test tubes with water samples — to much larger global phenomena and processes!
… Let's start with the consideration of the question of why our planet revolves, setting the usual for us hours.
The Earth might not rotate, as many other planets probably do not rotate. And then the climate on Earth would be quite different.
What could make it begin to spin, in addition to the Will for God?
Clearly, it was an oblique blow on the Earth of a very large cosmic body.
This blow set the planet in rotational movement.
But the blow was done precisely on the Earth’s firmament, forcing it to spin. And the noticeable effect of that cosmic body on the low-dens earthly atmosphere did not happen, therefore it remained in a state of inertia, rest.
So — the planet is spinning, and its great atmosphere — no.
Thus, the east wind blowing constantly in the equatorial belt of the Earth was formed. It is called the trade wind.
And at latitudes far from the equator, meteorologists are dealing with turbulences that are formed from the trade winds.
So, it is desirable to understand that this is not the atmosphere of the planet “blown” by winds, but the Earth is spinning and rubbing against a relatively still atmosphere.
… Due to this, in fact, we see in the tropical latitudes a constantly blowing powerful wind. And the wind, as many of us know, drives the water in the same direction, creating, for example, (along with the Moon) local tides.
And so, “the wind drives” throughout the Atlantic Ocean water in the direction to the west.
But… this grandiose current encounters an obstacle in the form of stretched from the north to the south Americas…
Where is obliged all this water to move? Here it, having encountered at the obstacle, flows, including, to the north and further to the east.
… Now, let us think: can the direction of the Gulf Stream change, and can the Gulf Stream stop altogether — under the influence of an insignificant decrease in the salinity of ocean water?…
