    The thermohaline circulation belt moves water between the deep ocean and surface ocean. Subsurface movement of water masses caused by density differences resulting from temperature and salinity.

    Surface waters it is wind driven....but the DEEP OCEAN current is slower and driven by dense high salinity part of the thermohaline circulation (thermo=heat ...halocline=salinity) Probably called belt because they work together in a continuous loop moving up and down.
