Oceans form a single, large, continuous body of water encircling all the landmass of the earth. They account for four- fifth of the Southern Hemisphere and three fifth of the Northern Hemisphere. They contain 97.2 percent of the world’s total water. There are four principal oceans in the world which are separated largely on the basis of their geographical locations. These are the Pacific Ocean, the Indian ocean, the Atlantic Ocean and the Arctic Ocean. All the other seas, inland seas or the arms of the oceans, are counted within these four main oceans.
The Ocean basins are broadly divided into four major sub-divisions. They are:
(a) Continental shelf;
(b) Continental slope;
(c) Abyssal plains and
(d) The ocean deeps
Reliefs of Atlantic Ocean
The temperature and salinity are two important aspects of the ocean waters which affect their movements. Therefore, the temperature, salinity and density of the ocean water have special significance in the study of circulation of ocean waters.
The waters of oceans are never still. The oceans actually exhibit three major types of movements - waves, tides and currents.
