Oceans By: Bethan colangelo

We can not drink salt water........Human kidneys can only make urine that is less salty than salt water. So if we drank salt water, our bodies would have to get rid of all the excess salt taken in by drinking seawater, you have to urinate more water than you drank. You would eventually get dehydrated and eventually die.
97% of the Earth's water is from the ocean. The ocean covers 71% of the Earth's surface. The ocean produces more than half of the oxygen in the atmosphere and absorbs the most carbon from it. Everything that we need from food, to water, even to products that we use in our life daily, is transported by the ocean. How would we be able to transport things via boat/ships without water ?!?!? Ocean-based businesses have a major impact economically.

This video talks about ocean current and how it affects the Earths climate........

The Sunlit Zone gets the most sunlight creating plants. Animals in this zone are seals, sea turtles, sea lions, manta rays, and sharks. The Twilight Zone has no and a limited amount of light. Jellyfish, squid and octopus live in this zone. The Midnight Zone gets no sunlight at all. Animals that live in this layer are viper fish, angler fish, snipe eel, and tripod fish. The Abyss is a zone deep in the ocean... Most of the animal life in this zone is sea spiders, blind shrimp, and hag fish. And finally the Hadal Zone is the extreme depth of the ocean where canyons and trenches are found. Water temperatures are freezing. Some life lives here but not much... usually sea cucumbers.
The oceans have many resources that we use. It provides minerals such as salt, sand, gravel, and some manganese, copper, nickel, iron, and cobalt can be found in the deep sea. It is also used to drill crude oil. The ocean plays a critical role in removing carbon from the atmosphere and providing oxygen
