A new research has shown that a major ocean's current is expanding because of global warming. According to the study conducted by researchers from University of Miami, the Indian Ocean's Agulhas Current is getting wider rather than strengthening.
The Agulhas Current, according to Ruf.Edu, is the second swiftest current in all the world's oceans. Agulhas which travels between Madagascar and Mozambique is deadlier than the swiftest current (the Gulf Stream) because the Gulf Stream moves through open waters of the Atlantic.
With its large size and depth, Agulhas transports warm, salty water away from the tropics. It influences not only on the regional climate of Africa, but the global as well, NDTV reported.
