The British Airways London Eye Featured 13 Apr 2006 Print

The British Airways London Eye

The British Airways London Eye, or simply the Eye for short, is a giant ferris wheel on the banks of the Thames constructed for London's Millennium celebrations. Also known as the Millennium Wheel it is the largest ferris wheel in the world at 135m high. Designed by architects David Marks, Julia Barfield, Malcolm Cook, Mark Sparrowhawk, Steven Chilton, and Nic Bailey, the wheel carries 32 sealed and air conditioned passenger capsules attached to its external circumference. It rotates at a rate of 0.26 metres per second (about 0.9 km/h or 0.6 mph) so that one revolution takes about 30 minutes to complete

Global ocean currents Featured 13 Apr 2006 Print

Global ocean currents

Global ocean currents. Computer artwork showing surface ocean currents. Warm water is red and cold water is blue. Surface currents are driven by the winds. At bottom is the eastward flowing Antarctic Circumpolar current. It is unobstructed by land for the entire circuit of the Earth and is the strongest current. The Gulf Stream is a warm current that arises in the Caribbean Sea and travels up the Eastern coast of the USA before crossing the Atlantic. It keeps western Europe significantly warmer than it would otherwise be. The Trade Winds drive the water westward along the equator and at mid-latitudes the water is driven eastwards by the easterlies. These opposing winds cause the currents in the ocean basins to form gyres, or giant loops
