Sea Mile or Nautical Mile. The unit of distance used at sea. It is the distance on the earth's surface subtended by one minute of Latitude at the earths centre. Because the earth is not a perfect sphere, a nautical mile varies with Latitude, being shortest at the equator and greatest at the pole. Its mean distance is 6077 feet, but this is rounded up to 6080 feet. In practice for most purposes it is taken as 6000 feet. It is divided into ten equal cables of 600 feet or 1000 fathoms of 6 feet.

A non metric unit of length; a statute mile, used for distances over land, is defined as 5280 ft.; a nautical mile, used for distances along the surface of the oceans, is defined as one minute of arc measured along the equator, which equals 6080.27 fit or 1.1516 statute miles.

A nautical sea mile is 6080 feet

A relativistic measure of surface distance over water - in theory, 6076.1 feet. In practice, a number of different values for the nautical mile have been observed while under sail, for example: after 4 p.m., approximately 40,000 feet; in winds of less than 5 knots, about 70,000 feet; and during periods of threatening weather in harbor approaches, around 100,000 feet.

A mile is a unit of length, usually used to measure distance, in a number of different systems, including Imperial units, United States customary units and Norwegian/Swedish mil. Its size can vary from system to system, but in each is between 1 and 10 kilometers.

A Scottish mile was the same length as the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, i.e. from the castle down to the Palace of Holyroodhouse. English miles were imposed in 1824 by an act of parliament.
