oceanicity

(Or oceanity.) The degree to which a point on the earth's surface is in all respects subject to the influence of the sea; the opposite of continentality.

Oceanicity usually refers to climate and its effects. One measure for this characteristic is the ratio of the frequencies of maritime to continental types of air mass.
