The World Ocean is the system of oceans on Earth as a whole. The World Ocean is full of environmental habitats teeming with life, beauty, recreation, and so much more. The World Ocean includes the Pacific, Atlantic, Arctic, Indian, and Southern Oceans.
Oceans are vital to our life and can do much to enrich our lives and inspire us. On Project sponsored by the Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation identifies five important ways the benefits of the oceans can be harnessed. They are clean energy, clean drinking water (once through desalination), aquaculture for food production, employment in fishing, tourism, recreation, energy and ocean transport industries, and air conditioning.
Oceans are the bulk of the Earth’s hydrosphere and cover 71% of the Earth’s surface. The Arctic Ocean is the smallest and most northern of the oceans. The Southern Ocean is the second smallest, most southern, and surrounds Antarctica. Both of these oceans contain seasonally varying amounts of sea ice. The Indian Ocean is the third largest and extends northward from the Southern Ocean to India. The Atlantic Ocean is the second largest and extends northward from the Southern Ocean between the Americas and Africa and Europe, to the Arctic Ocean. The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean. The Pacific Ocean is west of the Americas to Asia and Australia.
Whether you feel inspired by the beauty of the ocean to enjoy recreation, relaxation, creativity, or something else, it is vital to our lives. Be inspired! Have a bright day!
