Conservation status map of the global Aquatic habitats have been classified into marine and freshwater ecoregions by the Worldwide Fund for Nature WWF. An ecoregion is defined as a "relatively large unit of land or water containing a characteristic set of natural communities that share a large majority of their species, dynamics, and environmental conditions Dinerstein et al.
They are small, in demand, impacted by events far upstream or out at sea, and concentrate materials such as pollutants and sediments. Lagoon refers to both coastal lagoons formed by the build-up of sandbanks or reefs along shallow coastal waters, and the lagoons in atolls, formed by the growth of With the photographer summary by stephen reefs on slowly sinking central islands.
Lagoons that are fed by freshwater streams are estuaries. The intertidal zone foreshore is the area that is exposed to the air at low tide and submerged at high tidefor example, the area between tide marks. This area can include many different types of habitats, including steep rocky cliffs, sandy beaches or vast mudflats.
The area can be a narrow strip, as in Pacific islands that have only a narrow tidal range, or can include many meters of shoreline where shallow beach slope interacts with high tidal excursion.
Fixed-net fishing on the littoral zone along the Suhua Highway on the East coast of Taiwan The littoral zone is the part of the ocean closest to the shore.
The word littoral comes from the Latin litoralis, which means seashore. Websters defines the neritic zone as the region of shallow water adjoining the seacoast.
The word neritic perhaps comes from the new Latin nerita, which refers to a genus of marine snails, These, combined with presence of light and the resulting photosynthetic life, such as phytoplankton and floating sargassum make the sublittoral zone the location of the majority of sea life.
Voigt, Brian Glossary of Coastal Terminology Washington State Department of Ecology, publication Continental shelves[ edit ] The global continental shelf, highlighted in cyan Continental shelves are the extended perimeters of each continent and associated coastal plainwhich is covered during interglacial periods such as the current epoch by relatively shallow seas known as shelf seas and gulfs.
The shelf usually ends at a point of decreasing slope called the shelf break.
The sea floor below the break is the continental slope. Below the slope is the continental rise, which finally merges into the deep ocean floor, the abyssal plain.
The continental shelf and the slope are part of the continental margin. Continental shelves are shallow averaging metres or feetand the sunlight available means they can teem with life.
The shallowest parts of the continental shelf are called fishing banks. Details The character of the shelf changes dramatically at the shelf break, where the continental slope begins. The largest shelf — the Siberian Shelf in the Arctic Ocean — stretches to kilometers miles in width.
Other familiar bodies of water that overlie continental shelves are the North Sea and the Persian Gulf. The pelagic water column environment of the continental shelf constitutes the neritic zoneand the benthic sea floor province of the shelf is the sublittoral zone.
Coral reefs are aragonite structures produced by living organisms, found in shallow, tropical marine waters with little to no nutrients in the water.
High nutrient levels such as those found in runoff from agricultural areas can harm the reef by encouraging the growth of algae. Details Coral reefs are estimated to coversquare kilometres, with the Indo-Pacific region including the Red SeaIndian OceanSoutheast Asia and the Pacific accounting for Atlantic and Caribbean coral reefs only account for 7.
This is due primarily to upwelling and strong cold coastal currents that reduce water temperatures in these areas."The Photographer's Boy" by Stephen Bates is an intriguing tale of intertwined and parallel narratives spanning years.
