Atlantic Ocean Maps | Detailed Tourist Travel
Of all the world’s oceanic divisions, the Atlantic Ocean is the second on the list. It approximately covers more than 20% area of Earth’s surface and more than 25% of water’s surface. It is a kind of separation between the "Old World" and the "New World".
Atlantic Ocean is an important component of the global ocean. It connects to Arctic Ocean in the north, to the Indian Ocean in the southeast, and the Southern Ocean in the south (other definitions describe the Atlantic as extending southward to Antarctica). It is divided into South Atlantic Ocean and North Atlantic Ocean. South America and North America bound the Atlantic Ocean on the west. On the eastern side, the boundaries lead to Europe. In the southeast, the Indian Ocean merges with the Atlantic Ocean. The border is defined by the 20° East meridian, which runs in the southern direction from Cape Agulhas to Antarctica.
The coasts of The Atlantic include gulfs, bays and seas. The major seas are Baltic Sea, Caribbean Sea, Black Sea, Labrador Sea, North Sea and many other intermediate Seas.
There are a lot of spots which can be explored in the Atlantic which include the United States Navy Hydrographic Office, Challenger expedition and the German Meteor expedition.
The Climate of Atlantic is quite influenced by surface water temperatures and ocean currents. As the ocean has a huge capacity of storing and releasing heat, the climate is moderate and does not have extreme variations of seasons. Precipitation can be determined by the coastal weather data.Icebergs are quite common from the month of February to August in the northwestern Atlantic and even extend up to south. Super structure icing is subject on ships in the extreme north. Persistent fog is expected from May to September which can be a natural maritime hazard.
