Continental margin features - Continental shelf - A flat, shallow-water platform around the edges of the continents; varies greatly in width. Oceanography is a multidisciplinary science. Average salinity is 3.
Submarine canyon - A deep valley that is eroded into the continental shelf and down the continental slope. Back to Top V. Guyot - A flat-topped seamount that forms when waves erode a wavecut platform across the top of an extinct volcano that later sinks below the surface of the ocean.
When the two currents meet near the equator they rise to the surface. More about ocean currents - Ocean currents affect ocean navigation and determine ocean trade routes. Scientists who study the oceans are known as oceanographers. This process is known as outgassing.
Seamount - An isolated shield volcano with gentle slopes that develops on the ocean floor above a hot spot in the mantle.
Seamounts grow as underwater volcanoes that do not break through the surface to become islands. Atoll - A ring of coral islands. Continental rise - A gentle slope connecting the base of the continental slope to the ocean floor. Origin of the oceans - Comes from the water expelled from magma and lava during volcanic eruptions.
Abyssal plain - The flat, deep floor that covers most of the ocean basin. Volume of the ocean is 18 times greater than the volume of land above sea level. To learn about the major currents in the ocean and their origin, including tidal currents.
Goals of this module - To learn about the composition of the ocean. Study of the oceans is called oceanography. Below the surface mixed zone is a transition zone where the temperature lowers rapidly thermocline and the salinity decreases rapidly halocline. Movement from the pole to the equator takes to 2, years.
Currents moving away from shore on the eastern sides of oceans pull the surface water offshore and it is replaced by upwelling of cold, nutrient-rich bottom water. Grade 5 Earth Sciences Topics Water on Earth moves between the oceans and land through the process of evaporation and condensation.Gondola Final.
Topics: Gondola Also, in this sketch, I only had one material, which may have made the final result boring had I left it like this. 3. Final Sketch: After we completed our experiments with materials, I came up with a more developed concept and sketch.
I used the same basic concept, but I added a city on the bank. According the best records of the event, the staff said something was written on the “Etch-A-Sketch”, but couldn’t make it out, because of the blood on the “Etch-A-Sketch” and every time the “Etch-A-Sketch” would move the words would fade away.

[Full title/question topic:"Science will soon create the perfect human fresh-air-purifiers.coms."] Science, I believe, is a blessing more than it is a curse. Knowledge, and the desire to find out about the world around us as well as within us, is truly an admirable thing.
Technological advancement has served. With an introduction by Jim Yoakum, archivist of the Chapman estate, Calcium Made Interesting is a celebration of the best of Chapman's work, and is as funny, innovative and surreal as any Python sketch/5(4).
Bio Sketch. Topics: It is an exciting and interesting topic to be discussed and to be researched. In Decemberit made the strategic decision to outsource production of the Etch A-Sketch toys to Kin Ki Industrial, a leading Chinese toymaker, laying off U.S.
workers in the process.Download
