-measure of the amount of salts dissolved in sea water
Salinity
-enter the ocean from the atmosphere
Gases
-enters from the atomosphere and photosynthesis of ocean organisms
Oxygen
enters from the atmosphere and from respiration of ocean organisms; forms carbonic acid, which controls ocean acidity.
Carbon Dioxide
begins at about 200 m with temperatures rapidly dropping with increasing depth
Thermocline
Extremely cold
Deep Water Layer
wind that moves only the upper few hundred meters of the water
