As new techniques to explore the ocean floor are developed, scientists are discovering more species all the time. It constitutes about 20% of the world's total ocean area. Salinity is involved in a positive feedback: higher salinity in the deep water formation area enhances the circulation, and the circulation in turn transports higher salinity waters into the deep water formation regions (which tend to be regions of net precipitation, i.e., freshwater would accumulate and surface salinity would drop if the circulation stopped).

The German Advisory Council on Global Change, a think-tank set up by the government, argues for an entirely new UN body, a World Oceans Organisation, which it hopes would increase awareness of ocean mismanagement among governments, and simplify and streamline the current organisational tangle. There will be virtually nothing left to fish from the seas by the middle of the century if current trends continue, according to a major scientific study.

As spreading pulls the new oceanic crust apart, stripes of approximately the same size should be carried away from the ridge on each side (Fig. 5). And a few of them are now starting to examine the brain processes that underlie our connection to water. From sea shells and spiral galaxies to the structure of human lungs, the patterns of chaos are all around us.

For some, I know, the ocean creates fear and stress; but for me it produces awe and a profound, immersive, and invigorating peace. Water is less salty because of the abundance of equatorial precipitation throughout the year. Its cooling effect is thought to have a role in the recent slowdown in global surface temperature rise. Spreading of deep waters (e.g., North Atlantic Deep Water, NADW, and Antarctic Bottom Water, AABW), mainly as deep western boundary currents (DWBC).

One problem has been attributing what, exactly, has caused the rise seen so far. Whenever the partial pressure of a gas is increased in the atmosphere over a body of water, the gas will diffuse into that water until the partial pressures across the air-water interface are equilibrated. The Equilibration Model does open up the possibility, perhaps for the first time, to begin to calculate where and when pivotal world events such as major earthquakes should occur.
