Evaporation occurs more in the oceans because of the tremendously large surface of the ocean water that is directly exposed to the air above it.


Evaporation of ocean water is obvious in the warm sun-heated waters near the equator, but increased evaporation can occur anywhere above the oceans' surfaces where warmer air exists.

There is always evaporation taking place over water, so where there is more water, more evaporation will take place.
