Abstract (in english)
   The ocean environment is the most likely place where life originated on the Earth. The open ocean, exhibiting similar basic parameters (extent, rate of paleogeographic changes, depth) as those of the recent ocean, has been developing for roughly 2.5 Ga of the Earth's existence. The distribution and configuration of continents are the basic elements controlling the ocean shape, direction of sea currents, temperature and salinity, and consequently also the conditions for life.
