Oceanography

Parent Category: Earth Sciences
Oceanography, also called marine science, is the study of oceans. It includes the study of physical oceanography, marine chemistry, marine geology, and marine biology. Areas covered in oceanography are the shape, depth, and distribution of oceans, and also their composition, life forms, ecology, and water currents, as well as their legal status. If you would like to know more or share your knowledge about oceanography, ask and answer questions here! Includes questions related to the study of Earth's oceans and seas.
it affects the environment because all of the ocean trash lands in the grass.
Crawl back to the trees to climb and eat bugs and fruit fallen off of the trees.
No. The tides are a result of the gravitational pull of the moon as it rotates around the Earth. This rotation takes place over a period of 24 hours and 50 minutes. The Earth's rotation takes 24 hours and 0 minutes. Therefore, the two are not synchronized and the tide change will be different each...
Not much of an answer, but Its something to do with the moon and gravity.Hope that helps
The term for "harbor wave" or "standing water" in Japanese is spelled: Tsunami and is pronounced "sue-NAH-me."
Air pressure is not a factor in tsunami formation. Tsunamis usually originate from undersea earthquakes and landslides.
I think it helps thinking of Earth as being "pulled apart" by the  difference in gravitation, by the Moon, on both sides of Earth (the  nearer side, and the farther side).
Approx. 2 000 micromoles CO 2 (gas or ions) in 1L water.
the major cold ocean currents are the five main oceans which are the pacific Atlantic artic and southern
because it is low tide on the side of the earth closest to the moon causing a shift in the water level on the opposite side.
The greatest high tides are Spring tides where the Earth, Moon, and Sun are in a line . They are also the lowest low tides. The least high tides and low tides are called neap tides when the sun, moon and earth form a right angle
The moon affect the ocean tides because of the gravitational pull  that the moon has. Where the is a high tide, the moon is pulling  the water toward it's gravity. The water on the opposite side of  Earth, will pull away from the moon.
Yes because you are using a totally different medium to transmit the sound, some frequencies can carry farther under water than they do in the air and other frequencies (the high frequencies) can't go as far in water. Sound is a wave the lower the wave the farther it can travel, the higher the wave...
The intertidal zone is the area that is exposed to the air at low tide and submerged at high tide. (Also known as the "foreshore" or "littoral zone").The intertidal zone is the area of the shoreline which is covered the rising tide during high tide and exposed during low tide. After the Intertidal...
Coral reefs are found in salt water, on the ocean floor. Most often  they are found in warm, shallow water.
it was ashamed of its beauty so it tried to suicide.
i think its the moon and its gravitational pull
run away to higher ground
Yes. The nodes and antinodes alternate along the longitudinal wave.
The layer of the Earth that makes up the plates are known as the  lithosphere. The continents are sliding on the asthenosphere.
high tides occurs when the river climbs and heavy rain falls
At low tide the moon is more or less at 90 degrees to the point on the Earth where the low tide is. The Sun might be anywhere - it's not relevant.However, if the Sun happens to be in line with the Moon and the Earth then the high tide will be a spring tide and gretare than normal (because the Sun's...
Neap tides are the weakest
Heating differences between the poles and the equator because of  the sun lead to convection.
The area between bulges of water is a depression or a low-tide  area. High tidal bulges have these low-tide areas which would  correspond to troughs.
Objects float or sink based on a property called buoyancy. You can calculate whether or not an object will sink using Archimedes' principle, which essentially says that the weight of the displaced fluid must be equal to or greater than the weight of the object. This is dependant upon density (mass...
Oceanography which is sometimes known as oceanology or marine science. The study of life in seas and oceans is kno0wn as marine biology.
The smell of roting vegetation.
Usually two, in some places one, in some places four.
highest high tide is 1.76m or 5.8ft. lowest high tide is 0.1m or 0.03ft.
About 16,212 psi (1,118 bar) at that depth.
High tide on most days occurs twice per day. Once when the moon is directly overhead, and then when the moon is on the opposite side of the world.
the 3 underground zones include the saturated zone the unsaturated  zone and the phreatic zones
Typically there are two high tides a day. Think of it as two giant waves going around the world constantly.
Spring tide is bigger. Neap Tide is when it is the lowest.
a 200 foo t wave in the west coast
HIGH TIDE:the highest level of the sea surface LOW TIDE:the lowest level of the sea surface
0.5% _2%. Only 0.37% of the water on the earth is drinkable. See the following article for more information on it. . http://academic.evergreen.edu/g/grossmaz/MURPHYMW/
the distance of the moon from the earth the total gravity of the moonthe amount of water in the tide.....and ect by J.P.A
the climates changes
Full moon and new moon. Full moon and new moon. Full moon and new moon. Full moon and new moon.
  start off as ripples then gradually form into ocean waves.
a trench is formed when 2 oceanic plates collide
Yes, all the Oceans including the Pacific Ocean are salt water.
Gravitational forces from both the sun and the moon continuously pull on the earth.although the moon is much smaller than the sun , the moon's gravity is the dominant force behind earth's tides
Coral means a hard red,pink or white calcareous substance secreted by marine polyps for support and habitation. And reef means a ridge of rock.
Hydrothermal vents were discovered in 1977 in the Pacific ocean.
The largest wave ever recorded was the Lituya Mega-Tsunami and it reached 1720 ft.
A wave has a crest and a trough.
Yes. California had some damage, mostly to boats in dock, from the Tsunami that struck Japan in March of 2011. 1 Californian was killed. Additionally, there is a subduction zone stretching from the waters off Northern California to those off the coast of British Columbia. This could slip and trigger...
Average depth around 1000m (3400ft)

Sea is actually not blue its transprent.If you take some water in a transprent glass its transprent.there actually a blue pigment present in there.The blue you see (haha) is the color of the reflected sky above itsunlight have 7 colour .when the sunlight enter in water some of colour will reflaction...
Gravity is the force that causes the oceans tides. This is caused  by the attraction between the Earth and the Moon.
  Oceans and seas are blue because the water in them reflects the other colors and absorbs the color blue at the surface.as you descend,however,the color of the water changes.
salt water freezes at a lower temperature than fresh water so the fresh water gets frozen and not the salt water
At the openings of rivers
A very big tide around the new and full moons.
They do mix. Salt water and fresh water are not two completely different things; salt water is just fresh water with salt dissolved in it. Any time the two solutions are in contact, a saline gradient will form along initial boundary. Over time the gradient will become less steep, and eventually the...
No, 2012 is nothing more than a myth. Just alot of hype about a specific year. Its happened before and it will happen again,over and over again, yawn! People need to brag about something,anything. Its the silly nature of being human. Anyway,WHERES THE PROOF? ANSWER= Just talk,talk and more talk, but...
Tsunamis can be highly destructive and can also do next to nothing
Absolutely, not because of personal safety, but because of disruption of your trip.
The warmer the water the less oxygen it holds.
the gravitational pull of the moon
  This one had me for years. Start by assigning some simple values to the gravity of the moon on certain places around the earth. Assume that the pull of the moons gravity when directly above say England is at level 10. That causes a lump of water on that side of the ocean. You may remember that...
the gravitation of the moon is greater and the tides can either become bigger or smaller
Mangroves use a number of techniques to survive in intertidal zones. Many species excrete salt on their leaves or through glands on their trunks and roots. They also cope with low oxygen levels in the soil by using stilt roots or protrusions that extend out of the soil and into the air.
Yes. There are concerns that a tsunami could hit Florida. However,  the tsunami threat in the Atlantic is much less than it is in the  Pacific.
