A velocity is a vector quantity. "Eastward" indicates a vector component which is positive when directed eastward (negative westward). Ocean currents are related to phenomena of different nature and processes, such as density currents, currents raised by the wind, tide, wave propagation, mass flow in estuaries, etc. The term "total" here encompasses several processes simultaneously in order to get as close as possible to reality.

A velocity is a vector quantity. "x" indicates a vector component which is positive when directed eastward (negative westward). Ocean currents are related to phenomena of different nature and processes, such as density currents, currents raised by the wind, tide, wave propagation, mass flow in estuaries, etc. This Standard Name refers to the sum of currents of all origins.
