A sea is an assortment of saline water that makes much out of a planet's hydrosphere. On Earth, a sea is one of the major traditional divisions of the World Ocean, which covers very nearly 71% of its surface. These are, in plunging request by region, the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Southern, and Arctic Oceans. The sea contains 97% of Earth's water, and oceanographers have expressed that under 5% of the World Ocean has been investigated. The aggregate volume is around 1.35 billion cubic kilometers (320 million cu mi) with a normal profundity of almost 3,700 meters (12,100 ft).

As it is the primary segment of Earth's hydrosphere, the world sea is fundamental to all known life, structures some portion of the carbon cycle, and impacts atmosphere and climate designs. It is the living space of 230,000 known species, albeit a great part of the seas profundities stay unexplored, and more than two million marine species are assessed to exist. The source of Earth's seas stays obscure; seas are thought to have framed in the Hadean period and may have been the force for the development of life.Extraterrestrial seas may be made out of water or different components and mixes.

The sea can be isolated into three thickness zones: the surface zone, the pycnocline, and the profound zone. The surface zone, likewise called the blended layer, alludes to the highest thickness zone of the sea. Temperature and saltiness are generally consistent with profundity in this zone because of streams and wave activity. The surface zone contains sea water that is in contact with the climate and inside of the photic zone. The surface zone has the sea's slightest thick water and speaks to roughly 2% of the aggregate volume of sea water. The surface zone generally ranges between profundities of 500 feet to 3,300 feet underneath sea surface, however this can fluctuate an extraordinary arrangement. Now and again, the surface zone can be totally non-existent. The surface zone is ordinarily thicker in the tropics than in areas of higher scope. The move to colder, denser water is more sudden in the tropics than in areas of higher scopes. The pycnocline alludes to a zone wherein thickness generously increments with profundity because of abatements in temperature. The pycnocline viably isolates the lower-thickness surface zone above from the higher-thickness profound zone underneath. The pycnocline speaks to roughly 18% of the aggregate volume of sea water. The profound zone alludes to the lowermost thickness zone of the sea. The profound zone generally starts at profundities underneath 3,300 feet in mid-scopes. The profound zone experiences immaterial changes in water thickness with profundity. The profound zone speaks to around 80% of the aggregate volume of sea water. The profound zone contains generally colder and stable water.

The most profound point in the sea is the Mariana Trench, situated in the Pacific Ocean close to the Northern Mariana Islands. Its most extreme profundity has been assessed to be 10,971 meters (35,994 ft). The British maritime vessel Challenger II studied the trench in 1951 and named the most profound piece of the trench the "Challenger Deep". In 1960, the Trieste effectively came to the base of the trench, kept an eye on by a group of two men.

The sea significantly affects the biosphere. Maritime vanishing, as a period of the water cycle, is the wellspring of most precipitation, and sea temperatures decide atmosphere and wind designs that influence life ashore. Life inside of the sea developed 3 billion years before life ashore. Both the profundity and the separation from shore emphatically impact the biodiversity of the plants and creatures present in each region.The seas are crucial to transportation. This is on the grounds that the vast majority of the world's merchandise move by boat between the world's seaports. Seas are likewise the real supply hotspot for the angling business. A portion of the significant harvests are shrimp, fish, crabs, and lobster.
