    I don't see why it would be said that it isn't, it's not like it's an isolated body of water, it's the Atlantic ocean's overflow to the west. I believe it is a part of the ocean that is simply referred to as the "Gulf of Mexico".

    However I may be wrong...

    That little pond? It's a gulf, they should call it the Gulf. It's called an ocean because of it size.

    Well, its a Gulf, not an Ocean. That's true by definition. But I've swum in it, and I've swum in the Atlantic, and I can't see a whole lot of difference. So, I'd say it's kinda an extension of the ocean.

    See what I propose by technique of pondering the surely useful information? So I place in my techniques a gas field, between the partitions is a piston, you have some way of ascending or lowering the field utilising 0 capability, merely for concept sake. nicely, sheer water rigidity would compress the gas extra dramatically than the temperature distinction, it is my guess. on the different hand, you could no longer extract capability from rigidity because of the fact it derives from the gravitational means... Any capability advantageous factors from the gas growth at greater temperature would be marginal. lower back, a thermocouple would somewhat artwork (i think of?), however the fee for any considerable output,.... thank you for the OTEC hyperlink. lower back, information !!
