Sea

A sea is a large body of saline water that may be connected with an ocean or may be a large saline lake that, like the Caspian Sea, lacks a natural outlet. Sometimes the terms sea and ocean are used synonymously.

Frozen salt water is transformed into "sea ice"; this occurs below the freezing point of pure water—at about −1.8 °C (28.8 °F).

Famous quotes containing the word sea:

    Through the hollow globe, a ring
    of frayed rusty scrapiron,
    is it the sea that shines?
    Is it a road at the world’s edge?
