    How does the atmosphere influence ocean currents?
    Include oceanic storm creation.

    That is first question...

    This is second question...

    How do the landforms affect the interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere and other land areas (i.e. mountains/volcanoes)?

    Please help and explain to me thanks having trouble with these questions.

    I have given these questions some though and came up with an answer.

    For the first one i cam up with...

    - Convection, conduction and radiation from the atmosphere cause small energy changes which causes ocean currents.

    For the second one...

    Since the energy is transferred from the ocean and atmosphere which will form these landforms.

    Kinetic wind-wave energy transfer is one of the more obvious.

    Lynx means that the passage of the wind over the ocean will tend to move the water in the direction of the prevailing wind. The kinetic energy (the energy of motion) of the air is transfered, in part, to the surface layers of the ocean.
