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:

    To me, the sea is like a person—like a child that I’ve known a long time. It sounds crazy, I know, but when I swim in the sea I talk to it. I never feel alone when I’m out there.
    Gertrude Ederle (b. 1906)

    Times go by turns, and chances change by course,
    From foul to fair, from better hap to worse.

    The sea of Fortune doth not ever flow,
    She draws her favours to the lowest ebb;
    Her tides have equal times to come and go,
    Her loom doth weave the fine and Coarsest web;
    Robert Southwell (1561?–1595)

    SWEENEY:
    Nothing to eat but the fruit as it grows.
    Nothing to see but the palmtrees one way
    And the sea the other way,
    Nothing to hear but the sound of the surf.
    Nothing at all but three things
    DORIS: What things?
    SWEENEY: Birth, and copulation, and death.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
