Oceanography: 10 reasons why you’re probably wrong about the world’s oceans
The ocean is one of the most important systems in the universe.
But, according to some experts, it’s also a lot more complicated than you might think.
Here’s a look at 10 of the more controversial findings from a growing body of research.
The Earth’s oceans are really big and really dense.
It’s pretty much universally agreed that the oceans are the largest natural system in the world.
But what does that really mean?
The most comprehensive assessment of this is a new paper published in the journal Science by researchers at the University of Michigan.
In their paper, the researchers, led by Elizabeth M. Meehan, used computer simulations to calculate how much water there is in the ocean, and what kinds of bodies of water are in each one.
They found that the ocean contains about 1.7 trillion trillion cubic kilometers of water, or about 1,000 times the volume of Lake Michigan.
That’s more than the entire volume of the entire United States.
Muhan said the number is “very impressive,” and it could explain why our planet has such a vast amount of water in its oceans.
“When we measure the amount of ocean water, we actually measure something like a billion times more than we’re actually getting,” she told Mashable.
The oceans contain a lot of dissolved carbon.
Carbon is a key component of life on Earth, and it’s actually a key ingredient for the chemical reactions that produce oxygen and other elements.
Muffled underwater sounds like a strange place to breathe.
But this is exactly what happens when we breathe carbon dioxide out of the air.
“So when the carbon dioxide is in your lungs, it dissolves into water,” Mee.
told Mash the paper.
“If we can capture this water, it can be used for other things like photosynthesis, which we use to make oxygen.”
In other words, when carbon dioxide dissolves in water, oxygen is created.
Minkowski said this means that our oceans are a really good place to look for water.
“There is water on the seafloor that’s very salty, so the carbon in the water will absorb the salt,” she said.
“It’s also an ocean that is very acidic, so if you look in the seawater, you’ll find that there’s carbon dioxide and some other compounds that are not in water.
It is this kind of chemistry that makes it a very important source of carbon.”
There are lots of places where water is being pushed out of Earth’s ocean.
This may sound like a pretty big number, but a lot is known about where water can be moving.
Margo S. Dohlen, a geochemist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, told Mash on the phone that most of the ocean is in regions where there is “water on the sea floor that’s pushed out into the ocean.”
She said this happens in regions like the Arctic, which are really hot, and in the Gulf of Mexico, which is warmer.
So the water is moving out of these regions and getting into the oceans.
But that doesn’t mean it’s being pushed back out, as the researchers found in their study.
“In places where there’s a lot water on a seaflole, there’s also some water on top of the seafloors that’s being pulled out,” Minkowski said.
There’s an ocean of life.
The term “ocean of life” is commonly used to describe ocean life that’s on land, or in the oceans, or somewhere in between.
But is it really true?
A number of researchers have said it’s not true.
In fact, scientists have long been skeptical of the notion that there is an ocean at all, even if it’s present.
A lot of the research into the sea is based on models that look at the shape of the Earth’s mantle, which can be very distorted when it’s very hot.
For example, the idea that a large ocean is forming around the Sun, or that water is coming out of space to form the oceans of our planet, are all based on the same models.
But many scientists now think that those models are flawed.
They believe that the Earth is really flat, which means that the mantle is not pulling water out of our oceans, but instead is pushing it in.
That means that in reality, there isn’t an ocean.
The best model of the world that exists is one that assumes that the earth is really the center of the universe, and that the entire universe is made up of the same physical system as the Earth.
But Minkowkski thinks this is incorrect.
“The way you see the ocean in the sky is very different from the way you perceive the ocean on land,” she explained.
“We see the oceans as being quite flat, but the reality is that the water that’s in the waters is actually being pushed by the ocean that’s out there.”
