    The Jersey shore sand may be hot, but the water is bone-chilling cold thanks to uplifting.
    Normally just above 70ºF (21 ºC) this time of year, the ocean water in NJ is currently running about 60ºF (15ºC).

    I know that Robb is originally from Philly but now lives in California. When I was in Cali in July 2005, I had dipped my feet into the Atlantic Ocean in Atlantic City, NJ just before flying out to Cali.
    I decided to stick my feet in two oceans in the same week – imagine the shock that I got when I walked into the Pacific Ocean in San Francisco. I thought California waters were supposed to be warm – that water was COLD!

    yah it’s spiral effect (can’t remember the name, corealis or something) where the ocean currents tend to rotate clockwise due to the rotation of the Earth. That means on the east coast, the water is coming up from the equatorial regions where it was warmed up, but on the west coast, the water is coming down from the artic where it was cooled down.

    another peculiar effect, the waters off the coast of California are a nice calming blue, while off the coast of Florida, they’re more of an industrial green.

    The Gulf Stream flows up along the East Coast and across to pass by Ireland, England and even northern Scandinavia. The Russian city of Arkangelsk is the northermost city that is ice free in the winter. I learned that before global warming became an issue so it may not apply anymore.

    What is this, “Jump Start” or “Ripley’s Believe It or Not!”?
