Loop Current is a horseshoe-shaped feature that flows clockwise, transferring warm ocean currents from the Caribbean Sea through the Yucatan Straits into the Gulf of Mexico. It can reach a maximum flow speed of 6.5km/h.
Eddy Current is the circular motion of water on the surface usually caused by the flow around an obstacle. It can range between 10 and 500 kilometres in diameter and may persist for months. Due to the vigorous circulation associated with them, these currents are known to affect tidal conditions out at sea.
