Is the Atlantic or the Pacific ocean more calm?

The Pacific is more calm then the Atlantic. Pacific means 'peaceful'. So dur-the Pacific is more calm then the Atlantic.



BOTH oceans can be very calm or very rough, and by no means evenly thanks to their sheer area! One of the most commonly calm sea areas is in the tropical Atlantic, and named "the Doldrums" by ancient sea-farers who found their sailing-ships becalmed for days or weeks at a time there.

And- you don't understand why the name "Pacific". It was calm in that region at that time of first sited by European explorers (Vasco de Gama?); so they must have assumed that was its normal state and named it thus.
