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.
Nope Tides are useful for low depth regions to bring vessel. Tide sjust rise and fall of seawater level. it wont be harmful
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...
Plastic deformation, either elastic or ductile.
This process has many different terms. Plucking, erosion, andtransportation are just a few.
Not much of an answer, but Its something to do with the moon and gravity. Hope that helps
Yes, as changes in salinty affects the density of sea water, another of putting it would be that a Halocline is simply a region below the surface of a body of water where there is a significant increase or decrease in density.
The saltiest ocean is in Asia. It is called the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is so salty nothing can live in there. Most are 3.5% salt. The Dead Sea contains 24% salt!
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 thedifference in gravitation, by the Moon, on both sides of Earth (thenearer side, and the farther side).
Approx. 2 000 micromoles CO 2 (gas or ions) in 1L water.
The saltiest of the four major oceans is the Atlantic Ocean.
The Atlantic ocean is the saltiest ocean in the world for two reasons. 1) It is an ocean. 2) The Dead sea is in its region.
"Silt" is probably what you're looking for. It forms deltas. You can also call it mud.
There is a mid ocean ridge that forms because the hot magma is lighter (less dense than the colder magma. The ridge is located at the spreading center. There are magnetic anomalies that can be thought of as stripes that mirror each other on either side of the spreading center. There are remnants of...
World War 2 . ++++ . Primarily, Sonar, developed from the ASDIC systems used forhunting enemy submarines; and in pursuance of that developed thestudy of the complex nature of the bodies of salt water that arethe oceans.
The Number of waves produced in a given amount of time is called frequency. I believe im right. :)
the major cold ocean currents are the five main oceans which are the pacific Atlantic artic and southern
its a combination of the effects of the rotation of the earth and the gravitational forces exerted by the moon
Water, when cold, would sink as would other substances as the molecules in in become less active. The unique exception is when water freezes it rises, due to the molecules lining up to form crystal structures allowing spaces and thus making it act as a floatation device. Without this extraordinary...
The two main sources of sediment in the deep sea are: (1) Coastal Erosion - rivers, wind-blown dust and sand (from the deserts), volcanic eruptions (ash), glacially dumped sediment - about 45% (2) Dead organisms - shells and skeletons - about 55%. The other two are least common: Precipitation...
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 pullthat the moon has. Where the is a high tide, the moon is pullingthe water toward it's gravity. The water on the opposite side ofEarth, will pull away from the moon.
the last spring tide was in the year 2013.It occur during a new or a full moon
Assuming there would be no Moon, tides would only be caused by the Sun. Therefore, we would have high tides at noon and ad midnight - but those would be much less pronounced than the tides we have now.\n Assuming there would be no Moon, tides would only be caused by the Sun. Therefore, we would...
Plants also have a role in water cycle. Plants gives out water through transpiration. This water will combine with water vapour in the atmosphere and forms clouds. Plants also absorbs water through thier roots from ground water.
The difference is that the spring tides When the Sun, Earth & Moon are in alignment with one another spring tides occur. Spring tides are higher than average. When the Sun - Earth line is at right angles to the Earth - Moon line, we see "neap" tides, which are lower than average. A tide in which the...
No, the pitch (frequency) does not change, but its speed is muchgreater* because you are using a totally different medium totransmit the sound, some frequencies can carry farther under waterthan they do in the air and other frequencies (the highfrequencies) can't go as far in water. Sound is a wave...
A spring tide is when the effects of the Sun and Moon work together to bring extreme tides. A spring tide happens during a full and new moon.
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...
Coral reefs are found in salt water, on the ocean floor. Most oftenthey are found in warm, shallow water.
Tarquin the Proud ruled Rome from 534 BC- 509 BC, so for 25 years.
it was ashamed of its beauty so it tried to suicide.
They cause movement of the ocean.
i think its the moon and its gravitational pull
run away to higher ground
Blue water, Littoral zone, and the ocean floor
Tides are a global phenomenon. Any place with an ocean shore allover the world will see the same number of tides. The size of thenearest ocean, and the shape of the coastline will determine theheight of the tides. Some places, it's hardly worth mentioning.
In a jerky , up and down movement
The Moon's gravitational pull creates surges in the ocean and moving air (wind) moves that surge until a barrel and lip and wave are created.
The size of the wave depends on the strength of the wind, thedistance affected and the length of time it blows. . +++ That's true for a wave on water due to wind blowing across itssurface, but wave principles apply in all harmonic wave motion suchas sound and vibration, and the electromagnetic...
Yes. The nodes and antinodes alternate along the longitudinal wave.
The layer of the Earth that makes up the plates are known as thelithosphere. The continents are sliding on the asthenosphere.
high tides occurs when the river climbs and heavy rain falls
Spring Tides When the moon is full or new, the gravitational pull of the moon and sun are combined. At these times, the high tides are very high and the low tides are very low. This is known as a spring high tide. Spring tides are especially strong tides (they do not have anything to do with the...
hay there a wave is formed by flopping some water hay there a wave is formed by flopping some water
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 ofthe sun lead to convection.
Salt water can be converted to fresh water by freezing and removing the ice crystals, distillation or by reverse osmosis.
They were created by glacial movement 10.000 years ago, in the last ice age.
Referring to table salt, NaCl: It is a solution. It conducts electricity. It is colorless. It is clear. It tastes salty. It has a pH of 7. It kills most bacteria as a mouthwash. It is found in salt water lakes. It is found in seas.
The area between bulges of water is a depression or a low-tidearea. High tidal bulges have these low-tide areas which wouldcorrespond to troughs.
A dam is a big wall to stop water getting through to certain places. It is also used to irrigate water, and some dams, to make hydroelectricity. Hydroelectricity is electricity that comes from water. It is a environment friendly way of getting energy or power. Dams are, of coarse, found mostly on...
The relative position of a spring tide is when the moon new or full is closest yo the earth.
For the most part it does. There is some salt (brine) that is caught in the water when it freezes, but as the ice ages the brine will drain out.
1. a long, high wave is caused by an undersea earthquake 2. water displaced in an outward and upward patter (bulge) in all different directions 3. waves travel 10x fasterr :)
It is a vertical column of water in the ocean where the salinity changes rapidly as the water gets deeper. Most haloclines are found in the Atlantic ocean.
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.
That would be the neap tide. It produces the lowest low tide,whereas the highest high tide is called a spring tide.
Usually two, in some places one, in some places four.
one place where some tides go on is in the pacific and there was at least 50 everyday
On Earth, ocean tides are caused by the moon. This is because the moon is pulling on the surface of the Earth and the water in the ocean which is closer to the moon is pulled upward. This upward surge causes high tide while on the opposite side of the Earth (where the moon is furthest from the water...
The destruction of a tsunami could make a building fall down or flood the building. the percentage is 100.9% of damage.
Both the Tundra and the Ocean ecosystems share the feature ofhaving very low temperatures. As such, they also support verylittle vegetation growth.
because the water reflects off the sky. and that is the truth. so it is blue.
