Storyboard Text

  • Oh no! Our ship sunk and we are stuck on an island in the South Pacific Ocean!
  • Any one of this Ocean's many currents such as the South equatorial Current, The Peru (Humboldt) Current, East Australian Current, and Indonesian Throughflow could have washed us up!
  • Well I had a good  Oceanography teacher ;) and I remember that the South Pacific temperatures vary from 35-80 degrees fahrenheit and it gets hotter as you go to the equator. And its pretty fricken hot.
  • That is a completely useless piece of information, why did he say this?
  • Their are a few deep water currents in the South Pacific where global conveyor belt flows through the South Pacific Ocean with more warm, less dense currents but some of the colder, more dense currents flow through.
  • The average depth of the south pacific 4,280M and has many deep trenches throughout it.
  • Look another island! We can swim across!
  • We also need to worry about the tides Diurnal tides are mainly experienced in the South Pacific Ocean other pacific countries such as Australia, New Zealand and other Pacific nations to refer to an especially high tide, called the King Tide, that occurs only a few times per year.
  • We made it!
  • The shallow shorelines allow for easy fishing yields! If we stay on the beach we need to be careful of El Nino and La Nina Tropical cyclones form in the South Pacific basin, where they occasionally impact island nations.
  • I am just trying to survive not be rich
  • There are many treasures in the South Pacific as well, Polynesians reached nearly all the Pacific islands by about 1200 AD Charles Darwin’s expedition to the Galapagos Islands where he discovered the theory of evolution Spanish expeditions were used to discover Tuvalu, the Marquesas, the Cook Islands, the Solomon Islands, and the Admiralty Islands.
