  • This is fun... I found this out here: http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/csm/working_groups/Paleo/SpinUp/spinup.html A sverdrup is 10**6 m**3/s. In english, its a 100 meter per side cube per second, resulting in a total volume of 1,000,000 m^3 per second (I use ^ for exponent indication, some software uses double asterisks to indicate it as an operation.) One million cubic meters, moving past a point in one second. I guess its most useful in talking about current flow in big bodies of water. I never heard of it until 3 minutes ago ;-). Next, how much sverdurps is the Gulf Stream? I'd say there's seasonal fluctuations, but (google google google...): http://kingfish.coastal.edu/marine/gulfstream/p2.htm says, 30 Sv (the abbreviation for svssdrusllslkpsdks, lol!)
