Marine Biology: Function And Importance

Marine biology means that we are thinking about beautiful large water vertebrates that we are either afraid of or want to be friends with or seafood but there is so much more marine environment ranging from those tropical reefs to polar oceans, kelp beds, and sea grass, meadows, pelagic waters, estuaries, beaches, mangrove forest, and it's not all sharks and killer whales. Marine organisms are amazingly diverse from planktonic copepods and unicellular algae to lilies and jellies and all sorts of amazing worms.

Human interactions are also a part of marine biology our fisheries whether trade and water sport all come into play in this science but perhaps most of our science is about adventure and exploration and discovery why is that because most of our world is water and so when we look at our pale blue dot are little globe out in the middle space one of the things that stand out most is that our planet has liquid water. Where's that water? Mostly in the oceans. The ocean form 97.3% of the water on our planet the earth. The polar ice caps are only 2.1% and it just goes down from there when we are looking at freshwater sources like groundwater and lakes and atmosphere and rivers tiny percentage. So, when we are talking about water on our planet we are talking about oceans. Oceans cover some 71% of the Earth's surface at an average depth of 3,800 m that's amazing that is most of the planet. So, the southern hemisphere is covered mostly by water but there here 80% northern hemisphere slightly less 61% and of that ocean of that entire water mask 84% deeper than 2000 m. That means that the majority of our planet is cold and deep and dark and most importantly unexplored waiting for you to get there and explore the unexplored marine biology.
