Bank

 

(1) Parts of the sea floor over which the depth of the water is not as great as in the surrounding parts. In seas resulting from transgression, banks are elements of the residual land relief; in oceans, they are volcanic or coralloid in origin. Banks of sandy deposits may change their contours and location under the influence of the currents. Heating of the shallow layers of water by the sun creates in several banks exceptionally favorable conditions for the development of organic life; many banks are regions of intensive fishing. The waters of the Great Newfoundland Bank (near Newfoundland) in the Atlantic Ocean, Dogger Bank in the North Sea, Medvezhinskaia Bank in the Barents Sea, and many other banks abound in fish. Banks with shallow waters are dangerous for ships.

(2) Seat for rowers and passengers on launches.
