Ocean currents can no longer be thought of as 'rivers in the sea'. archival film of early water mass investigations on board the research vessel 'Discovery' is followed by a description by walter M...unk and Peter Rhines of the classic MODE project. Modern techniques of measuring and modelling the meso-scale circulation may soon enable scientists to forecast 'weatehr' inside the oceans as well as above them.
