  Ocean - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Oceans (from Ὠκεανός Okeanos in Greek, the ancient Greeks noticing the strong current that flowed off Gibraltar and assuming it was a great river) cover almost three quarters (71%) of the surface of the Earth, and nearly half of the world's marine waters are over 3,000 meters (9,800 ft) deep.
The original concept of "ocean" goes back to notions of Mesopotamian and Indo-European mythology, imagining the world to be encircled by a great river, Okeanos, "Ωκεανός" in Greek, Samudra in Hindu mythology (compare also Jörmungandr, the sea serpent living in that outer ocean in Norse mythology).
The world was imagined to be enclosed by a celestial ocean above the heavens, and an ocean of the underworld below (compare Rasā, Varuna).
