The reverse process, called “downwelling, ” also occurs when wind causes surface water to build up along a coastline and the …

The whitetip shark is notorious for targeting shipwreck survivors As the shark swam closer to the boat, seasoned skipper David Bond noticed the beast was about 14ft long and probably weighed more than 1, lb. Then, just as silently as it had appeared, the giant predator sank slowly back into the deep. While one maneater is enough to chill the bones of even the saltiest ­seadog, on Monday the respected Angling Times reported that a 10ft ­oceanic whitetip is also patrolling our waters …
