silly question - 4 or 5 oceans?

Recommended Posts

Hmm...I was curious so I looked over at my World Map and the following Oceans are listed:


North Atlantic

South Atlantic

North Pacific

South Pacific





Growing up, I was always told there is no Anarctic Ocean....but my Earth book by the Smithsonian has a map that has the following labeled:


Arctic Ocean

Atlantic Ocean

Pacific Ocean

Indian Ocean

Southern Ocean



What's correct? I purchased both the map and the book the same year...:confused:
