Ocean thermal energy is due to
A. energy stored by waves in the ocean
B. temperature difference at different levels in the ocean
C. pressure difference at different levels in the ocean
D. tides arising out in the ocean
The ocean thermal energy arises due to heating of water at the surface of sea or ocean by the radiations of Sun which results in heating of upper surface of ocean but the lower surface remains cold. This temperature difference is used to obtain ocean thermal energy.
