Oceans in the world

There are five oceans: the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic and Antarctic. We tell you about some qualities of each one and the general importance of these, with figures and facts, as well as what they contribute to human beings.

The world’s oceans occupy three quarters of the world’s surface. They contain 97% of the Earth’s water and account for 99% of the planet’s living space by volume. These vast expanses of water are home to much of the planet’s biodiversity and are also the planet’s main lungs. Specifically, the oceans produce 50% of the oxygen generated on the planet. Their importance for the development of life on the planet is fundamental. Here are some of the main facts about the five oceans on our planet.

There are five oceans on the planet, occupying an extension of the planet. The largest ocean is the Pacific and the deepest with 10,924 meters. It is followed by the Atlantic with 9,219 meters and the Indian Ocean with 7,455 meters. The others are the Arctic and the Antarctic.

The ocean is a body of water that makes up a large part of the hydrosphere of a celestial body.[1] On Earth, an ocean is one of the major conventional divisions of the World Ocean, and «separates two or more continents.»[2] Oceans occupy most of the surface of the planet.

The depth of the ocean is variable depending on the areas of oceanic relief, but is shallow in comparison to its surface. The average depth is estimated to be approximately 3900 meters. The deepest part of the ocean is found in the Mariana Trench, reaching a depth of 11 034 meters.

Temperature profile (degrees Celsius) with respect to depth (meters) of ocean water, typical of mid and low latitudes. The thermocline are layers of water where its temperature changes rapidly with depth.[25] The thermocline is a layer of water in which the temperature changes rapidly with depth.[25

Salinity depends on the amount of salts it contains. Approximately an average of 3.5 % of the mass of the water corresponds to substances in solution. If there is a lot of evaporation, a greater amount of water disappears, leaving the dissolved substances, thus increasing the salinity.
