Expert Answer:

Dear Heera,

The atmosphere and the ocean are closely linked by the transfer of heat, gases and energy from one to the other.  For example, energy from the wind blowing over the surface of the ocean produces waves and currents.  Similarly, the ocean surface absorbs most of the heat from the sun and the surface currents move this warm water around the world and warm the atmosphere from below. Water cycle is also an example of interaction between ocean and atmosphere. During hot weather, water from the sea evaporates forming water vapour. The latter then cools down to form clouds and result in precipitation.
