Wailuku in Maui County, Hawaii — Hawaiian Island Archipelago (Pacific Ocean)
Maui Ocean Center
Visually, the open ocean is a featureless environment. This makes it difficult to use sight for navigation. Hammerhead sharks can travel vast distances across the ocean by detecting electromagnetic fields around the Earth. Electromagnetic fields are produced as a result of differences in polarity between the north and south poles.
