THE DEEP SEA BED: ITS PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY AND BIOLOGY Organized and edited by H. Charnock, F.R.S., J.M. Edmond, F.R.S., IN. McCave, A.L. Rice and T.R.S. Wilson The deep ocean floor is the largest, most remote and therefore least studied environment on Earth. In addition to its inherent interest, as a sink for global carbon it may have an.   In the near future, we may further expand the scope of use of audible sound from chemistry to other fields, such as physics, fluid mechanics, chemical engineering and biology." Sources: Eureka Alert Share.   The textbook explains how processes in the ocean are linked to the main four sciences: chemistry, biology, physics, and geology. The style is natural for the students to read. There is a companion website for students that contains additional information and quizzes. Production of Sediment The production of marine sediment is more complex than it may seem. Terrigenous sediment is produced by an interplay of chemical and physical weathering processes, which collectively serve to create small grains of material ranging in size from thousandths of millimeters to 1 or 2 millimeters( or inch).

Answer b: Trenches, abyssal plains, etc are useful for deep sea research. On the ocean-bed, there are some landforms which are deep, narrow and steep. They are called marine deeps or trenches. These currents flow till the sea-bed of the ocean. They flow like rivers continuously below the surface of the sea. The difference in temperatures of various parts of the ocean is the major reason behind the deep-sea currents. Warm water has lower salinity and density. Such water comes to the surface of the sea. Cold water with high density. The deep sea or deep layer is the lowest layer in the ocean, existing below the thermocline and above the seabed, at a depth of fathoms ( m) or more. Little or no light penetrates this part of the ocean, and most of the organisms that live there rely for subsistence on falling organic matter produced in the photic this reason, scientists once assumed that life would be sparse.

Calcium carbonate precipitation in sea ice is thought to potentially drive significant CO 2 uptake by the ocean. However, little is known about the quantitative spatial and temporal distribution of CaCO 3 within sea ice, although it is hypothesized that high quantities of dissolved organic matter and/or phosphate (common in sea ice) may inhibit its formation.

Oceanography is an amalgamation of diverse topics and oceanographers reflect multiple disciplines like biology, chemistry, geology and physics that interrelate to expand knowledge of the world oceans and the processes within. The areas which Oceanography brings under its focus is the deep sea and the shallow coastal regions.
