is the systematic study of the ocean environment on all scales and from biology to physics. It includes descriptive, quantitative, predictive, interdisciplinary science.
Branch of marine science that studies seafloor formations, sediments, and coastal formations
the study of the lifeforms in the ocean and their relationships to one another
heated seawater, odd constituents in composition, can trace plumes by chemical signature
cycling of seawater through mid-ocean ridges; plumes circulate around ridges, currents can exist even this deep!
Smallest and shallowest ocean, permimant layer of sea ice at the surface
Worlds largest and deepest ocean, contains many tropical oceans
second largest ocean
Exists mostly in the southern hemisphere
