    The depth of water involved in this current between Taiwan and South Ryuku is m while its average velocity is 89cm per second. Experts say that cleaning up the patch entirely is likely impossible, but some are trying to at least mitigate the problem. Debris tends to collect in swirling, circular currents called gyres. Above all, these objectives include combatting terrorist threats, promoting stability across the Indo-Pacific region, increasing free and fair trade, and strengthening energy linkages". Coral reefs are dying around the world. However, the venom can travel to the lymph nodes and may cause symptoms that mimic an allergic reaction including swelling of the larynxairway blockage, cardiac distress, and an inability to breathe though this is not due to a true allergy, which is defined by serum IgE.

    In the event of a surface attack, the sail can be deflated, allowing the colony to temporarily submerge. The Epipelagic zone extends from the surface to m down. The gas-filled bladder, or pneumatophore, remains at the surface, while the remainder is submerged. The blue sea slug Glaucus atlanticus specializes in feeding on the Portuguese man o' war, [37] as does the violet snail Janthina janthina. More acidic water is making it harder for organisms that make shells out of calcium carbonate, like clams and corals, to survive. Oceans, which absorb about 30 percent of the CO2 released into the atmosphere, are also highly susceptible to the changes taking place in a warming world.

    Pacific sardines feed in these zones and form huge schools that are heavily exploited by commercial fisheries. Check out the cool trivia and have fun learning about some of our planet's most amazing features. The current transports oceanic water at the; rate of 25 million m3 per second. Scientists are just beginning to learn about life in the deepest parts of the oceans. Medical attention for those exposed to large numbers of tentacles may become necessary to relieve pain or open airways if the pain becomes excruciating or lasts for more than three hours, or breathing becomes difficult. Hydrothermal Vent Animals The discovery of enormous fields of underwater hydrothermal vents in the Indian Ocean led researchers to a wide range of vent animals, including mussels, scaly footed gastropods and anemones.

Heat in the form of hot salt water or hot packs may be applied: heat speeds the breakdown of the toxins already in the skin. The temperature at Peruvian coast does not fall considerably because of this current. It is also called the twilight zone because of the limited light that can filter through these waters.

The widespread fire in the forest of Indonesia in was related to drought resulting from strong El Nino event. All these fish benefit from the shelter from predators provided by the stinging tentacles, and for the Portuguese man o' war, the presence of these species may attract other fish to eat.

Endangered Species Over-fishing of certain species of fish and shrimp, as well as oil and gas drilling, have impacted the habitat of animals in the Indian Ocean and compromised their food sources. Scientists are just beginning to learn about life in the deepest parts of the oceans.

They also help us find new natural resources and fundamentally understand the dynamics of our planet. Finally, the hadalpelagic zone extends from 6,m to the very deepest parts of the ocean in deep trenches and canyons. Their diets consist primarily of seagrass. The whale shark is one of only three species of sharks that filter feeds, or suctions food such as zooplankton through gill slits rather than through its mouth.

The largest ocean covers nearly a third of the planet and containskm of coastline. The samples we recovered were continental type rocks erupted and oceanic rocks differ significantly in composition which indicated that this piece had indeed rifted from India. Navy submersible, and film director and explorer James Cameron made a solo trip in The closer the equipment is to the seafloor, the better it is able to resolve smaller features and more subtle detail.

West Wind Drift. It receives plenty of sunlight and therefore contains the most biodiversity in the ocean. In its way, the term "Indo-Pacific" can be thought of in the same way as using terms like "Post-Rock" or "World Fusion"[ citation needed ].

The abyssopelagic or abyssal zone continues to 6,m where very few creatures can be found due to the lack of light and near freezing temperatures. The average discharge is 20 million m3 per second.

Marine pollution occurs when harmful, or potentially harmful, effects result from the entry into the ocean of chemicals, particles, industrial, agricultural and residential waste, noise, or the spread of invasive organisms. Most sources of marine pollution are land based. Portuguese man o' war.

Almost all world’s oceans damaged by human impact, study finds

The Portuguese man o' war (Physalia physalis), also known as the man-of-war, is a marine hydrozoan found in the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans. It is one of two species in the genus Physalia, along with the Pacific man o' war (or Australian blue bottle), Physalia atlasbowling.com: Hydrozoa.

Nov 22,  · The Indian Ocean is the third largest ocean in the world after the Atlantic and the Pacific. It is encircled by Africa, the Southern Ocean, Asia and Australia and is home to a number of endangered marine animals, such as the dugong seals, turtles and whales.

The dugong is a species of sea cow found throughout the warm latitudes of the Indian and western Pacific Oceans. It is the only member of the Dugongidae family, and its closest living relatives are the manatees.

Dugongs can be quite large, reaching lengths of more than 13 feet (4 m) and weights more than one metric tonne. Marine Life. Life in the ocean is amazing! Cute and cuddly, creepy crawly, gigantic and microscopic - marine life comes in millions of shapes and size.
