National Geographic named the Southern Ocean the fifth in the world




The Southern Ocean, which washes Antarctica, is officially recognized as the fifth ocean in the world. The cartographer's conclusion was presented by the National Geographic magazine.





The Southern includes the waters surrounding Antarctica and extending to 60 degrees south latitude with the exception of the Drake Strait and the Scosha Sea. A separate ocean was singled out, as its waters have their own distinctive features, experts concluded.

The question was open for a long time since some geographers recognized the Southern Ocean only as a continuation of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans. In addition to them, there is also the Arctic Ocean on Earth.
