Why is the ocean floor more dense than land?

    The ocean floor is more dense than land because it has thousands of feet of water pressure pushing down on it. This compacts all the atoms and molecules that compose the sea floor making it more dense. It is common, however, to have low density magma flowing from the earths mantle through cracks in the ocean floor, causing sea floor spreading.
