In this video from NOVA: “Earth From Space,” learn about patterns of global ocean circulation, which distribute heat around the planet. Differences in the density of water masses drive large-scale ocean currents. Dense water forming over the continental shelf of Antarctica is exported to the adjacent deep ocean, creating streams of very cold water that spread northward along the sea floor into the global oceans. Visualizations show the constant motion and flow of ocean currents. ...

During the Paleoindian period, the sea level in North Carolina was lower because so much evaporated seawater fell to freeze into glaciers that reached from the North Pole down through Canada. Scientists estimate water levels were 125 feet below the present water surface around 14,000 years ago. Most of the now-underwater Continental Shelf was exposed land. This meant that, in some places, the ancient coastline was more than 50 miles east of the modern shore! (artifacts)
