Mesozoic ocean currents?
Well, the answer is probably yes, but it would take some oceanographic
background. The major wind driven ocean currents of today can be derived
from global wind patterns and from the locations of the major land
masses. You (or an oceanographer) might be able to do it "back of the
envelope" but there are paleo-oceanographers who actually study that sort
of thing. Try a google search on paleooceanography and see of any of the
results point into the direction of what you are actually looking for.

this may sound strange...but is there any way to tell which way the
currents of ancient oceans flowed? a way based upon fossil plankton, or
analogy with modern seas, or however?
