Q

Temperature decreases most rapidly with depth at ___________ latitudes.

a) high

b) low

A

Answer: B. Low.

The light and heat generated by the sun are absorbed by the water as soon as it hits the surface and is only retained by the first few meters of the ocean’s water.

Also, the colder and saltier water gets, the heavier it becomes, and the quicker it sinks to the ocean’s floor. In the process, warmer, less dense water remains at the surface of the ocean.
