    It depends upon the meaning of "deep ocean" - how deep, and do you mean vertical circulation, or horizontal (more or less) circulation ?  There are global currents which are  not driven by any of these.  I suppose that vertical circulation is mainly due to density differences, but the overall picture is more complicated than that.
