What would you like to do?
When denser seawater sinks under less dense seawater a current is formed?
The accumulated salts in seawater make the seawater much more dense than fresh water One of the characteristics of salt water is that it has?
A lower freezing point than fresh water
its called subduction
This is known as subduction. The subducting plate introduces volatiles into the mantle which acts to cause melting and the formation of magma. This rises to the surface promot…ing volcanism in the overlying plate.
If you are talking about plate tectonics, the action you're referring to is called subduction.
Salt water is more bouyant than fresh water. An item will not sink further, but will sink faster in fresh water than in salt water.
Density is the amount of mass per unit of space/volume. For example, water has a density of around 1 kg/liter because 1 liter of water has a mass of 1 kg. Something is les…s dense if the mass per volume is lower and more if it is higher. Oil floats on water because it is heavier than the same volume of water (less dense), but a stone will drop to the bottom because it has a much higher density than its volume in water (denser).
i would believe this would be due the salt content in saltwater & salinity <(^.^)>
A density current forms when more dense seawater moves toward less dense seawater.
Not at the start because as you all ready know that a football does float on water. But after a long period of time it will finally of lost the air inside and them yes it will… finally sink. But this just doesn't happen in sea water it will happen in any water. I hope that has asked your question.
Nitrogen is less dense: Nitrogen: 1.2506 g/L Argon: 1.7824 g/L
What kinds of sediments mix with seawater to form turbidity currents What does this mix do to the water?
sand, silt, clay, and other particles and sediments mix with water.this mix forms very dense water.
The salt in ocean water causes the water to be heavier, making the object more buoyant
