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.
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.
The Pacific Ocean
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.
Well, it is actually of importance. The Pacific Ocean meets the Atlantic Ocean at Cape Horn, in Chile.
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.
The Pacific is by far the larger.

No. The Pacific ocean cover 46% of the earth's water
they are both the exact same, it's just that more people travel through the Pacific.
Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean anyway!
nothing. They just waved.
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.
The American continents
The Atlantic ocean is warmer than the pacific because of the warm gulf stream
