The Indian Ocean is the third-largest of the oceans of the Planet and it is the youngest one. It stretches for more than 10,000 km between the southern tips of Africa and Australia. Asia is to the north and the Southern Ocean is to the south. The Indian Ocean has been known by its present name since at least 1515 when the Latin form Oceanus Orientalis Indicus is attested, named for India, which projects into it.
