Covering approximately 22% of Earth's surface, the Atlantic is second in size to the Pacific. With its adjacent seas, it occupies an area of about 106,400,000 square kilometres (Template:Rndnear sq mi);[2] without them, it has an area of 82,400,000 square kilometres (Template:Rndnear sq mi). The land that drains into the Atlantic covers four times that of either the Pacific or Indian oceans. The volume of the Atlantic with its adjacent seas is 354,700,000 cubic kilometers (85,100,000 cu mi) and without them 323,600,000 cubic kilometres (77,640,000 cu mi).

The average depth of the Atlantic, with its adjacent seas, is 3,339 metres (Template:Rndnear ft); without them it is 3,926 metres (Template:Rndnear ft). The greatest depth, Milwaukee Deep with 8,380 metres (Template:Rndnear ft), is in the Puerto Rico Trench.
