Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean on the Earth. It extends from Bering Sea in the Arctic to the frozen Ross Sea in the Antarctic, and from the Indonesian coasts to Colombia. It also includes several islands, more than which are enclosed in the other oceans, and a total of 17 independent countries.

Its bottom is heterogeneous, indeed it is possible to find submerged volcanic mountains, oceanic volcanic islands but also deep trenches, as the Mariana Trench.

Pacific Ocean includes five climate regions, among which on the Western there is the monsoon region, with large seasonal variations, while near equator, where there is the large number of islands, the weather is characterized by stable winds that allow to have constant temperature.
