The most important source of sediment is earth and rock material carried to the
sea by rivers and streams; the same materials may also have been transported by
glaciers and winds. Other sources are volcanic ash and lava, shells and skeletons
of organisms, chemical precipitates formed in seawater, and particles from outer
Water is a most unusual substance because it exists on the surface of the earth in
its three physical states: ice, water, and water vapor. There are other substances
that might exist in a solid and liquid or gaseous state at temperature normally
found at the earth’s surface, but there are no other substances which occur in all
three states.
Water is odorless, tasteless, and colorless. It is the only substance known to exist
in a natural state as a solid, liquid, or gas on the surface of the earth. It is a
universal solvent. Water does not corrode, rust, burn, or separate into its
components easily. It is chemically indestructible. It can corrode almost any metal
and erode the most solid rock. A unique property of water is that it expands and
floats on water when frozen or in the solid state. Water has a freezing point of
0 C. and a boiling point of 100 C. Water has the capacity for absorbing great
quantities of heat with relatively little increase in temperature. When distilled,
water is a poor conductor of electricity but when salt is added, it is a good
conductor of electricity.
Sunlight is the source of energy for temperature change, evaporation, and
currents for water movement through the atmosphere. Sunlight controls the rate
of Photosynthesis for all marine plants, which are directly or indirectly the source
of food for all marine animals. Migrations, breeding, and other behaviors of
marine animals are affected by light.
Water, as the ocean or sea, is blue because of the molecular scattering of the
sunlight. Blue light, being of short wavelength, is scattered more effectively than
light of longer wavelengths. Variations in color may be caused by particles
suspended in the water, water depth, cloud cover, temperature, and other
variable factors. Heavy concentrations of dissolved materials cause a yellowish
hue, while algae will cause the water to look green. Heavy populations of plant
and animal materials cause the water to look brown.
