The measurement of currents at various levels in deep water is a difficult and expensive task, and the few available measurements do not allow the construction of a coherent picture of these currents. The available general circulation models have not yet reproduced the general circulation in the desired detail and they are unable to reproduce real-time synoptic currents. The only method for computation of real-time currents in the ocean, including wind and tidal currents, is by the use of the Hansen type Multi-Layer Hydrodynamical-Numerical Models.
