What is the most vital thing that we get from the ocean?

What are other things that we get from the ocean?

  1. CONTENT

Four principle oceans

Pacific

The World’s largest ocean, it covers over half of the total ocean surface and over 1/3 of the entire surface of the planet.

Atlantic

Named after the Atlas Mountains, it is about half the size of the Pacific and is not as deep.

Indian

Slightly smaller than the Atlantic, it lies mostly in the Southern Hemisphere.

Arctic

About 7% the size of the Pacific, it is permanently covered with an ice sheet.

Antarctic

Arguably another ocean, it is where the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans meet. However all oceans on Earth run together and form one huge ocean which covers 71% of the Earth’s surface.

THE ORIGINAL SEVEN SEAS

Mediterranean

Adriatic

Aegean

Caspian

Aral

Black

  1. SUMMARY
  2. Oceanography is very important to all of us. We originated from it. Our lives depend on it. We must take care of the oceans for our own sakes.

    Some important questions are:

    What is the scientific method?

    What is the origin of the atmosphere and the oceans?

    What is photosynthesis and respiration and how are they interrelated?
