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:

    Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs,
    Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers’ eyes,
    Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers’ tears.
    What is it else? A madness most discreet,
    A choking gall and a preserving sweet.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It is the sea that whitens the roof.
    The sea drifts through the winter air.
    It is the sea that the north wind makes.
    The sea is in the falling snow.
    This gloom is the darkness of the sea.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    should some limb of the devil
    Destroy the view by cutting down an ash
    That shades the road, or setting up a cottage
    Planned in a government office, shorten his life,
    Manacle his soul upon the Red Sea bottom.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
