  • Slide 1
  • Physical Oceanography Chap. 15 The Oceans Sea Water Ocean Movements
  • Slide 2
  • The Oceans 15.1 Objectives identify methods used by scientists to study Earths oceans discuss the origin and composition of the oceans. describe the distribution of oceans and major seas
  • Slide 3
  • I. Introduction
  • Slide 4
  • What are some useful features of oceans? A.Uses
  • Slide 5
  • I. Introduction A.Uses 1.travel 2.fishing/food 3.recreation
  • Slide 6
  • I. Introduction A.Uses B.Studying
  • Slide 7
  • I. Introduction A.Uses B.Studying 1.H.M.S. Challenger Measured depth, water temperature, fauna, current, and other data. First measured Mariana trench (26,890 ft.)
  • Slide 8
  • I. Introduction A.Uses B.Studying 1.H.M.S. Challenger 2.Meteor Used sonar to map undersea topography
  • Slide 9
  • Example Calculation A sonar signal travels about 1500 m/s in ocean water. If it takes 6 seconds for a signal to return to the ship after it is emitted what is the distance to the ocean floor?
  • Slide 10
  • I. Introduction A.Uses B.Studying 1.H.M.S. Challenger 2.Meteor 3.TOPEX-Poseidon NASA satellite that measures ocean data
  • Slide 11
  • TOPEX/Poseidon tracks ocean tides measures sea levels (to 5 cm accuracy) monitors climates by measuring ocean temperatures.
  • Slide 12
  • II. Ocean origins
  • Slide 13
  • A.Oceans are as old as Earths rocks

  • II. Ocean origins A.Oceans are as old as Earths rocks 1.Lava flows have been dated at 4.6 b.y.
  • Slide 15
  • II. Ocean origins A.Oceans are as old as Earths rocks 1.Lava flows have been dated at 4.6 b.y. 2.These formed rocks by cooling quickly (in water)
  • Slide 16
  • II. Ocean origins A.Oceans are as old as Earths rocks B.Source of water
  • Slide 17

  • Slide 18
  • II. Ocean origins A.Oceans are as old as Earths rocks B.Source of water 1.Comets (dirty snow balls) 2.Water was trapped in Earth when it formed. Volcanoes released this into the atmosphere.
