The Earth's crust is the first layer on Earth. Humans, animals and plants live life in the Earth's crust. The first layer (the crust of the Earth) consists of two types, namely land and water. The portion of the two are different. Although most living creatures live on land, but the water portion is larger or larger than the land itself.

The waters that become the face of the Earth consists of oceans, seas and can also form ice or water that has been frozen. While the land itself is large and small islands, and also the continents. On land sometimes we sometimes find some waters, such as lakes, rivers and so forth. It is therefore not surprising that the percentage of water is more enveloping the Earth's crust than land or land.

Ocean as the Majority Component of the Earth's Crust
It has been said previously that the Earth's crust is largely covered by water. This water is mostly ocean or ocean. The ocean is an enormous amount of salt water. It is even said that the ocean is a collection of several seas. So we can imagine how big the ocean is. Earth has more than one ocean. Though the oceans are basically hand in hand, they are separated in different identities or different names. About the ocean on Earth there are at least five oceans, including: Pacific Ocean, Indies, Atlantic, Arctic, and Antarctica.

As the majority of the components of the Earth, the existence of oceans has a very important role for the survival of humans, animals and plants. Besides having an important role for the life of living things, the oceans also play a very important role to maintain the condition of the Earth. The ocean is not just a place to live creatures that live in water, ocean water can also keep the temperature on Earth. Oceans in addition to having benefits are also often used as tourist attractions, especially the coastal areas of the coast. The ocean, which is the majority component of the Earth's crust, has immense depth and depth. That is why the oceans have a remarkable secret, both researched and unexamined by scientists. On this occasion we will discuss about one of the types of oceans that exist on Earth, namely the Pacific Ocean.

Understanding the Pacific Ocean
Pacific Ocean
The Pacific Ocean is also known as the shady sea. While the name Pacific itself comes from the Spanish "Pacifio" which means quiet. Pacific Ocean is the largest water collection area in the world. It is said to be the largest in the world because the Pacific Ocean covers about a third of the Earth's surface. When measured and incubated, the Pacific Ocean reaches 179.7 square kilometers or 69.4 mi square.
The length of this Pacific Ocean reaches 15,500 kilometers or 9,600. This ocean stretches from the Bering Sea in the Arctic to the ice boundary of the Ross Sea, South Antarctica. In addition the Pacific Ocean also stretches from Indonesia to the coast of Colombia. The western boundary of the Pacific Ocean is usually placed in the Malacca Strait. No wonder why this Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean or the largest in the world compared to other oceans.

The location of the Pacific Ocean
The Pacific Ocean is the largest oceans on Earth and the king of the oceans (read: list of oceans of the world). The Pacific Ocean is so large and deep, that its existence extends into various regions. Astronomically, the Pacific Ocean reaches its largest east-west width at about 5 ° N which extends about 19,800 km from Indonesia to the coast of Colombia.

Some information about the location of the Pacific Ocean we have known before. Some claim that the area of ​​the Pacific Ocean reaches one third of the Earth's surface area. Because the Pacific Ocean meets almost one third of the earth's size, so many countries are or are bordering the Pacific Ocean. There are many countries bordering or passed by the pacific ocean, among them are as follows:

Amerika Continent

  2. Chili
  3. Ekuador
  4. El Savador

These are some countries in the world that borders directly with the Pacific Ocean. A lot is not it? Among the three categories, the most widely passed by the Pacific Ocean is in the Asian continent. There are many mysteries or secrets that exist in the Pacific Ocean, and some of them revolve around this Asian continent.

Characteristics of the Pacific Ocean
The oceans of the world are composed of several numbers. Each of these oceans has their own characteristics. This is also the same with the Pacific Ocean. Pacific Ocean has its own khasan only owned by the Pacific Ocean only. Some of the characteristics possessed by the Pacific Ocean include the following:

1. It is the most widespread ocean in the world
The size of the Pacific Ocean is much larger than the other oceans in the world, such as the Atlantic, the Arctic and also the Indies. The size of the Pacific Ocean reaches even 1/3 of the Earth's surface area.

2. Has the deepest trough in the world
Did you know that in this world there is the lowest point? And the location of the lowest point in the world is in the ocean trough. There are several oceanic troughs, and the deepest trench is in the Pacific Ocean. The deepest trench in the world is the Mariana Trench which reaches 10,911 meters deep from the sea surface. The manger of Mariana as the deepest trough has so many mysteries in it.

- Crossed the international date line on the longitude of the west and east longitude coinciding in the Samoa Declaration. That is, when in the area of ​​longitude west is Sunday, then the east longitude region experienced Monday.
- Pacific Ocean currents flow into the Indian Ocean through the Makassar Strait, Lombok Strait, Bali Strait, partly through the Halmahera Sea, the Maluku Sea and also the Arafuru Sea.
- International Date Line or international date line located at 180 degrees East Longitude and 180 degrees west longitude is in the Pacific Ocean.
- The Pacific Ocean base is often the epicenter of the earthquake in Japan, the Philippines, the West coast of North America as well as Latin America.
- In this Pacific Ocean outflow Kurosyiwo hot currents and cold currents Oya syiwo where the two meet each other in the Bering Sea which causes the condition of sea water is very good for the development of marine fish. And this area is often used as a sea harvest for fishermen.

These are some of the characteristics or uniqueness of the Pacific Ocean. Characteristics or uniqueness is a hallmark that is owned by the Pacific Ocean.

Mysteries of the Pacific Ocean
Ocean as a very wide and deep water basin contains many mysteries that are unknown and unnoticed by humans. Humans do not know what exactly is in or in the bottom of the ocean in detail. More and more scientists in the world have been researching the ocean and what is in it even to the deepest point in the world.

And thanks to those studies we get information about what is in the Ocean, including the Pacific Ocean. Some interesting mysteries or secrets are also found in the Pacific Ocean that in fact is the largest ocean and most deep in the world. Some interesting information from the Pacific Ocean is as follows:

1. Mariana Trench
The secret of the Pacific Ocean is that there are several troughs occupying the deepest trough in the world. One of the deepest troughs is the Mariana trough. The Mariana Trench is a trough in the Pacific Ocean. Trench of Mariana is precisely located in the Philippines. The Mariana Trench is the deepest trough in the world where its depth reaches 10,911 meters below sea level.
The deepest point in this trough is named Challenger. This name was obtained after a study by the British Navy Challenger II ship in 1951. Inside this trough also some researchers say that life like an ancient fish that is a Pacific Shark Sleeper whose size has reached about 30 feet.

2. Tongan Trench
After the Mariana Trench, there is a Tongan Trench. Trench Tonga is also a trough located in the Pacific Ocean region. This trough becomes the second deepest trough in the world, with a depth of 10,882 meters below sea level. The deepest point of this trough is called "Deep Horison". This trough also became one of the mysteries possessed by the Pacific Ocean.

3. Philippine Trough
The secret of the other Pacific Ocean is the Philliphine trough. As the name implies, this trough is located in the country of the Philippines. This trough becomes the deepest ranks number three in the world with a depth of 10,540 meters. This trough is also named as the long Mindanao Trench stretching approximately 1,320 kilometers long.

4. Tile-Kamchatka Trench
Next there is the Kamilat Kuril Trench. Again, this inner four-story trough belongs to the secrets of the Pacific Ocean. This trough has a depth of 10,500 meters.

5. Kermadec Trench
The Kermadec trough is the deepest trough with number five in the world. The Kermadec trough is just like the previously mentioned troughs, which are the secrets of the Pacific Ocean. This trough is located east of Australia. Trench Kermadec has a depth of 10,045 meters below sea level.

6. Japan Trench
Next is the Japanese Trench. The Japanese trough is a trough in the country of Japan, of course. The Japanese trough is also in the Pacific Ocean region. The Japanese trough has a depth of 9,000 meters. Pacific Ocean does have many troughs that at once become a secret owned by the Pacific Ocean.

7. The plane disappeared
In the world of aviation in the world, several times the strange event that the loss of aircraft when crossing over the Pacific ocean. Some of the missing aircraft were Malaysia Airlines MH370 jet, Amelia Earhart in 1937.

8. Bloop
Bloop is a sound recorded by NOAA. This sound is heard in the Pacific Ocean. This sound is said to be unique because it is detected by a monitor station which is 3,100 miles away. Some scientists claim that this bloop is derived from the outbreak of glaciers, but some believe that this sound comes from a very large living thing.

These are some of the mysteries or features of the Pacific Ocean. These mysteries are always attempted to be examined by scientists so that later obtained more recent data and accurate for humans.
