The Pacific Ocean
This question depends on exactly where you are looking. If you are discussing the difference between the coastal waters of the united states. According to the government websi…tes including the NOAA website the coastal waters off of the East coast are warmed due to the the water being brought up from the equator compaired to the pacific ocean which brings water down from Artic. Leaving the East coast Atlantic waters with a warmer average temperature.
nothing. They just waved.
The Atlantic is saltier
The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean in the world at 155,557,000 sq km. Its deepest point is the Mariana Trench (Challenger Deep) at 11,033 metres. The Atlantic O…cean is the second largest ocean in the world at 76,762,000 sq km. It is also the second deepest at the Puerto Rico Trench (Milwaukee Deep) at 8,648 metres.
The Pacific Ocean meets the Atlantic south of South America at Cape Horn, and over the North Pole (the ice-cap is only floating sea-ice). In reality, the Pacific and Atlan…tic Oceans only exist as separate oceans because we agree to draw an imaginary line that separates and divides them. In actuality, they are one... The line we draw only exists in our minds. If you were to go to the southern tip of South America, you could find a spot perhaps, where you could stand with one foot in the Atlantic and one foot in the Pacific. But you would not see any distinction between the two. There would be no line or any distinguishing marks. Your intellect see many parts, your soul knows there is only ONE. Praise Jah!
The Atlantic ocean is warmer than the pacific because of the warm gulf stream
the pacific and Atlantic ocean or not connected because the central America blocks it.... The Panama Canal connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans! +++ Wrong! They AR…E connected naturally, past the Southern tip of South America, and over the North Pole, whose ice-cap is floating ice, not land. They are separate oceans only because we choose to name them as such for convenience. The seas of the world are all one, albeit with their own circulations etc.
Not directly, but with the circulation of the oceans, water can be transferred from one to the other through either the Arctic Ocean or Antarctic Ocean. The two oceans come ve…ry close together in Central America, so close in fact that the Panama Canal was built between the two so ships could move from one to the other.
Well, it is actually of importance. The Pacific Ocean meets the Atlantic Ocean at Cape Horn, in Chile.
the Atlantic is 106,400,000 square kilometres and the pacific ocean is 165.25 million square kilometres, therefor the pacific ocean is deeper. :) hope this helped :)
It's the opposite way my friend. The pacific ocean loses about one inch per year, and Japan's earthquake made the pacific lose about 4 inches of water.
Both the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans have water boundaries with the Arctic Ocean, so it gets pretty cold up there. They also both cross the equator, so it gets warm also. …Both Oceans has a myriad of warm currents running through them. As they are both so huge, I guess the correct answer is, it depends where you are.
South America. that's why there is a panama canal. the Atlantic ocean and pacific ocean are at different sea levels.
No, The pacific is separated from the Atlantic by the Isthmus of Panama (a strip of land essentially connecting North and South America - south of Belize) Answer … Nothing, it is an arbitrarily made up line.
there both oceans and They both have mid-ocean ridges.
