There are the downsides to a corrupted ocean such as ours; continuous melting of the ice caps and the pollution plaguing the water. Nevertheless, we will explore these waters and learn about all the wonders of the vast sea and find out the inexplicable beauty that lies beneath the surface.
Imagine all of the glorious wonders below the waves in the deepest darkest parts of the ocean, scientists do not know about and we have yet to discover. The exploration of the ocean still has a long way to go; since, less than 10% of the ocean has been explored. With the investment of exploring space slowing down, it would be beneficial for the US to continue the exploration of our own oceans. The US needs to get involved in the exploration of the ocean, because it holds many benefits.
The sea is an unknowable construct, utterly unpredictable and without pattern. The most significant and recurring descriptions of the sea relate to its ambiguity, the unrealness of its representation. The descriptions of the ocean as "indefinite as God" and the "howling infinite" are consistent with the the ocean's curiously wide-ranging characteristics. The ocean is also likened to "Hell's flames," another seemingly paradoxical analogy. As being ten thousand fathoms indicates, the ocean can be all these things; endless diversity is possible in "the vast swells of an omnipotent sea." The ocean is regarded for its resistance to human understanding. The given characteristics of the setting place a high value on mystery and a low value on the
God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. He separated the light from the darkness he called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” God called the vault “sky.” God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it. God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their

Since the beginning of the human race, people have flocked to the ocean. The largest civilizations were built in fertile, coastal areas. Oceanographer and professor at Stanford University, Mark Denny, opened up his book, How the Ocean Works: An Introduction to Oceanography, with the statement, “Throughout history, men and women have been drawn to the sea” (Denny 1). Here in Hawaii, this is especially notable. Hawaii was discovered by islanders who were adventuring across the sea, using it to feed them and working with the currents on their journey. Now, hundreds of years later, visiting the white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters of Hawaii is on nearly the whole world’s bucket list, but it might not be around for much longer. This would be devastating to the planet, as environmental expert Jennifer Weeks says oceans supply most of the Earth’s food and oxygen (Weeks). Not only does the sea provide the most basic necessities for survival, but it has also provided “...Anticancer and antiviral drugs based on substances produced by coral reef species...” (Weeks). Despite all the research that has been done, and is currently underway right this moment, we still know less about the ocean than we do about space! Elisabeth Mann Borgese, an expert in environmentalism, has written, “Our ignorance of the ocean is profound, and although we have learned much during the last hundred years, our knowledge of ocean processes and life in the oceans will remain forever incomplete” (Borgese 23). As Borgese said, it is impossible to learn all there is to know about the sea, but knowing what to do to fix the state of the world’s oceans is vital and attainable information.

When people think of the ocean, their mind usually drifts to squids and colorful fish. Not
There was a point in time where no human or god had walked the surface of the earth. Until where the land met the sea, a mare was born. She was made of white sea-foam and her name was Eiocha. Somewhere nearby a oak tree grew tall and strong. The oak tree provided seeds and berries for Eiocha. Eiocha kept eating the seeds and berries until one day she gave birth to a god. The god's name was Cernunnos. When Eiocha gave birth to Cernunnos the pain was so great that she stripped the bark of the tree and threw it into the ocean. The bark was transformed by the sea and became the giants of the deep.
Humans have always had a relationship with the ocean. Whether the relationship is good or bad, the ocean links humans together and surrounds them. The ocean is an important resource that people learn more and more about every day. Technology has had great impact on the ocean as well as how people perceive the ocean. Both Richard Gillis and Rachel Carson touch upon this age-old relationship between humans and the ocean and how technology aids or hurts this connection.
95% of the ocean has not been explored. With all the species and environments within the ocean that we have discovered, it is mind blowing to think that we have only seen 5% of what the ocean has to offer. The World is Blue: How Our Fate and the Ocean’s are One explores our long standing relationship with the ocean. This book is penned by oceanographer, explorer, and lecturer, Sylvia Earle. She earned her B.S degree from Florida State University, M.S and PhD from Duke University, and has accumulated 22 honorary degrees. She has worked as a director for multiple corporate and nonprofit organizations and as chief scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration . Earle’s research concerns marine ecosystems with an emphasis on conservation, which is the focal point of her novel. It is woven with stories compiled from decades of work and exploration, and with facts and arguments concerning our changing ocean. Sylvia’s novel is about the relationship between humans and the ocean, whether it be through the extinction of species, climate change, or even exploration and aquaculture, we ultimately affect the ocean and it affects us.
The large, beautiful bodies of water are home to an infinite number of strange creatures and bewildering phenomena. Oceans make up about three-fifths of the earth and yet we have little idea about what lies in those darkened depths. There are many mysteries of the oceans that still have no explanation. To start with, scattered around oceans there trenches, incidentally all of them are approximately seven miles deep.
It starts off saying that once in a while on a nice day, go outside and enjoy the day. Breathe in the fresh air and feel the breeze in your hair. (Lines 3-4) The reader should take the time to feel the grass between their toes, smell the flowers, and watch the clouds. (Lines 6-7) Listen to the bees buzz, and to climb the trees. (Lines 9-10) Look out into the meadow and watch the deer play. (Lines 11-12) People should pick the flowers, watch the streams glisten and listen to the sound of the water splashing. (Lines 13-16) When you feel at peace inhale and lay on the ground. Let nature tranquilize you. (Lines
