Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Norwegian Sea is a marginal sea in the North Atlantic Ocean, northwest of Norway. It is located between the North Sea (i.e. north of Scotland) and the Greenland Sea and adjoins the North Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Barents Sea to the northeast. In the southwest, it is separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a submarine ridge running between Iceland and the Faroe Islands. To the North, the Jan Mayen Ridge separates it from the Greenland Sea. Unlike many other seas, most of the bottom of the Norwegian Sea is not part of a continental shelf and therefore lies at a great depth of about two kilometers on average. Rich deposits of oil and natural gas are found under the sea bottom and are being explored commercially, in the areas with the sea depths of up to about one kilometer. The coastal zones are rich in fish that visits the Norwegian Sea from the North Atlantic for spawning. The warm North Atlantic Current ensures relatively stable and high water temperatures, so that contrary to the Arctic seas, the Norwegian Sea is ice free throughout the year.
