        Shipwrecks Reveal Ocean Currents

        Abandoned ships and other objects lost at sea may ride ocean currents for months or even years before sinking or washing ashore. This video segment adapted from NOVA describes what scientists have learned about one important ocean current, the Gulf Stream, by studying the paths of ships abandoned during the late 1800s.
