With a maximum depth of about 7,434 meters (24,390 ft) and temperatures between -2-10 °C (25-50 °F), the Southern Ocean is known for its tough weather conditions – it is the coldest and windiest ocean on Earth.

The latitudes from 50 to 70 degrees south are also known as the “Furious Fifties” and “Shrieking Sixties” due to strong winds and large waves caused by the winds that blow around the globe in those areas.
