Caribbean Acronyms

The Caribbean Sea, the southern part of the American Mediterranean between the Antilles, Central America and South America.The Caribbean consists of the Yucatán Basin with the Cayman Basin, the Colombian Basin, the Venezuela Basin and the Grenada Basin. Off the coast of Venezuela are the Bonaire and Cariaco tombs.

The Caribbean is connected to the Gulf of Mexico through the Yucatán Canal and to the Atlantic Ocean through the numerous straits between the Antilles. The most important channels for deepwater emergence in the Caribbean are the Windward Passage between Cuba and Haiti, which allows Atlantic deepwater to drain into the Cayman tomb and further through the Yucatán Basin to the Gulf of Mexico and the Anegada-Virgin Passage on the Virgin Islands, which renew the Venezuelan and Colombian Islands. In each strait, the threshold depth is about 1 600 m. Hot surface water from the Atlantic equatorial currents penetrates the Caribbean Sea between the Little Antilles and the strait between Grenada and Trinidad, forming the Caribbean stream, which continues into the Gulf of Mexico. The largest depth, 7,535 m, lies in the Cayman tomb.

Important natural resources are fish and oil. Shrimp fishing is most important, but also sardine and menhaden fishing, mainly for the production of fishmeal, and tuna fishing are of great importance. Oil and gas are extracted in Maracaibo in Venezuela and outside Trinidad. The Caribbean is a tropical sea with rich coral reefs. Hurricanes often cause severe material damage and loss of human life.
