A sea is a large water body that has saline water. In most cases, seas are connected to the oceans. Seas are sometimes referred to as large water lakes with saline water. Seas usually have no outlets and this is why they have saline water. The sea is important to many organisms both plants and animals. There are some plants that are able to live saline water and these plants can usually be found in many seas. Many animals such as fish, snakes and lobsters are usually found in seas. However, plants and animals live in different depths of the seas. This is depending on the salinity of the depth that is favorable for a particular organism.
Red sea is one of the major seas that are associated with marine activities. It is usually found at the boarder of Africa and Asia. This sea usually drains its water to the Indian Ocean. It is important to note that red sea was formed as a result of the formation of the rift valley. This sea covers about 138 thousand square kilometers of land. The highest depth of the sea is about 2211 kilometers even though the average depth is 490 kilometers. Red sea was formed by the movement of the red sea shift that led to separation of Africa from Arabia. Red sea is considered to be highly saline with an average of about 40%o of salinity. The reason for the high salinity level is that there is high evaporation rate since the sea is found between a desert and a semi desert. This salinity is usually reduced by the exchange of water between Indian Ocean, gulf of Eden and Arabian Sea.
As a Christian, I am able to get some information about red sea since the bible has some history about the sea. This is in the case where the Israelites were crossing the sea. Through the bible, I have been able to identify the other name of the sea which is the Erythra Thalassa.
North part of Indian Ocean. A sea that had many reeds.
Sal means salt. Therefore saline means a solution that contains salts. Saline is a solution that is considered to be isotonic to the blood.
It is a valley that was developed along a rift. This valley is usually boarded by faults.
Rift valley is a long and wide valley that is found between two faults.
A stream that allows water from a water body. An escape road.
