Sharing is Caring :-)

List Of Oceans Of the World: Oceans are vast bodies of salt water that cover about 70% of the Earth’s surface. The ocean contains 97% of the planet’s water, yet more than 95 percent of the underwater world remains unexplored. Oceans and lakes play an integral role in many of Earth’s systems, including climate and weather. According to NOAA, there is only one world ocean.

However, this ocean is divided into geographical regions with distinct names by countries and oceanographers. Although the ocean plays a major role in sustaining life on Earth, we have only explored 20% of the ocean. The largest ocean in the world is Pacific Ocean followed by the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Southern Ocean, and Arctic Ocean, which is smallest ocean in the world.
