During spring and summer the surface waters of the oceans have an abundance of blooms of these mostly minute organisms. The growth of phytoplankton frequently removes all nutrient elements—principally nitrogen, phosphorus, and silicon—from the surface waters. In spring and summer, the surface waters are warm and light and do not easily mix with the cold, heavy deep water. So new nutrients are not available to the surface waters. 45 Investigating Earth’s Oceans The tiny plants and plant like organisms called phytoplankton are the principal food source of the sea.

Waves Next to their vastness, the most striking feature of the oceans is the constant motion of Surfers swim as a huge wave crashes onto Manly Beach in Sydney, Australia.

Waves—ripples, ridges, and hollows moving over the water—are the cause of this choppy, rolling, or otherwise disturbed appearance. Wind is the most common cause of waves. Waves generated by the wind may range in height from less than an inch to as much as 60 feet (18 meters).

As they descend, bacteria attack and partially destroy their remains. The nutrient elements are then liberated and return to the solution in the depths. Upwelling is a process of vertical water motion whereby subsurface water and its suspended nutrients are carried 46 Biological Oceanography toward the surface. The most pronounced coastal upwellings are found off the western United States, Peru, Morocco, South Africa, western Africa, Western Australia, and south of the Aleutian chain. The reverse process, downwelling, completes the cyclical movement of bodies of water.
