Salinity is high during the earlier part of the year i.e January to may and lower during the late part the year( June to December). The worlds deepest sea was discovered by a British scientist known as Dr Jon Conelly. Below the wide spreading of the sea, the scientist discovered world’s most extreme deep- sea volcanic vents more than three miles below the ocean surface with undersea hot springs that were jetting streams of water, probably hotter than four hundred and fifty degree Celsius.AC3_Caribbean_Sea
