Happy World Ocean Day!



The ocean is filled with such beautiful wonder, fierce danger, and Mysterious Life!


The oceans of Earth serve many functions, especially affecting the weather and temperature.  They moderate the Earth’s temperature by absorbing incoming solar radiation (stored as heat energy).  The always-moving ocean currents distribute this heat energy around the globe.  This heats the land and air during winter and cools it during summer.


The ocean affects every human life. It supplies freshwater (most rain comes from the ocean) and nearly all Earth’s oxygen. It moderates the Earth’s climate, influences our weather, and affects human health.
