- from Oceans
Anyone who has experienced the 150-mile-per-hour winds and pounding rain of a raging hurricane has a deep respect for—and probably a healthy fear of—the ocean.
The ocean can be cruel and unsparing. It is in the ocean that some of the world’s most dramatic weather begins.
But the oceans are responsible for more than destructive weather. They help spread the Sun’s warmth around the globe, making our planet a welcoming place not only for sea creatures, but also for land dwellers, like us.
