The Coral Sea is the Pacific Ocean that lies between the shores of Australia, New Guinea, and New Caledonia. The surface area is 4791 thousand km². The maximum depth is 9140 meters.
It is bordered to the west by the east coast of Queensland, including the Great Barrier Reef, to the east by Vanuatu (formerly New Hebrides) and New Caledonia, and to the northeast by the southern tip of the Solomon Islands. In the northwest, it reaches the southern coast of eastern New Guinea, including the Gulf of Papua. It merges with the Gulf of Tasman in the south, the Solomon Sea in the north, and the Pacific Ocean in the east. In the west it is bounded by the mainland coast of Queensland, and in the northwest it connects with the Arafura Sea through the Torres Strait.
The climate of the area in which the Coral Sea is located is warm, therefore the temperature of the surface layers of water, especially in its northern part, is quite stable - + 28- + 29 degrees C. In the southern regions - from +19 (August) to + 24 degrees C (February).
