What separates the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans?
The continents of North America and South America separate the Pacific Ocean from the Atlantic Ocean. North America separates the North Atlantic Ocean from the North Pacific Ocean, whereas South America separates the South Atlantic Ocean from the South Pacific Ocean. Since North and South America are connected, the continents of North and South America separate the entire Pacific from the entire Atlantic Ocean.
What two continents are attached to each other by an isthmus that also separates the world's two largest oceans?
Pacific Ocean, which separates Asia and Australia from the Americas Atlantic Ocean, which separates the Americas from Eurasia and Africa Indian Ocean, which washes upon southern Asia and separates Africa and Australia Southern Ocean, sometimes considered as the southern portions of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans, which encircles Antarctica. Arctic Ocean, sometimes considered a sea of the Atlantic.
The names of the oceans are: * Pacific, * Atlantic, * Arctic, * Indian and * Southern. The Pacific and Atlantic Oceans are also sometimes split into Northern and Southern parts. e.g. North Pacific, because of their size. The five main oceans in the world are the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Antartica, and Artic.
There are only five oceans: Atlantic, Arctic, Indian, Pacific, and Southern. However, sometimes the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans are split into north and south (North Pacific, North Atlantic, etc.), which would total to seven oceans. However, these splits are not separate oceans and should be considered as such. In reality there are only five.
