The Air-Sea Connection
How are the ocean and the atmosphere connected?
- So how does something in the ocean influence the atmosphere? The sea and air are really connected, each influenced by the other, with the same dynamics occurring in both.
- The sea and atmosphere are both fluids; they differ in terms of density. Sure the sea is a thousand times more dense than the air, but that doesn't separate them. The sea and atmosphere come together at an interface.
The Air We Breathe
- Oceans are a critical player in the basic elements we need to survive. Ocean plants produce half of the world’s oxygen, then these waters absorb nearly one-third of human-caused carbon dioxide emissions. Oceans also regulate our weather and form the clouds that bring us fresh water.
