Transcript of ocean deeps
http://www.niot.res.in/m5/mbic/me/zones/deepsea.htm The adaptation Introduction The deep sea represents the largest habitat on earth. It's ranges is from the edge to the bottom of the sea. The ocean is reached and extends over the ocean depth s of 5000 meters average.
In the deep sea there are many types of creatures. These creatures live in harsh conditions, such as small amount of oxygen, little food, and no sunlight. That is why the deep sea is an extreme environment. characteristics Adaptations Deep sea fishes are adapted to crushing pressures. They often have soft and flabby flesh and bones that can't be collapse under all the pressure. Also there is no light in the deep ocean. The ocean extends about 200 meters down. Natural light can't pass threw the deep ocean.Deep sea animals have eyes larger than other animals. This helps them to see and catch prey as well as avoid predators. Those are some of the adaptations of deep sea animals. Where the deep ocean is located There are 3 characteristic that make the deep ocean an extreme environment. The 3 characteristic that make the deep ocean extreme is light, air pressure and temperature. Natural light does not pass threw the ocean deep. Since plants are the producer of almost all of earth's ecosystems. Life in this area of the ocean must depend on energy sources from some where else. Air pressure is also another reason why the deep ocean is an extreme environment. The pressure increases 1 atmosphere for each 10 meters. Last is the temperature. The temperature in the deep ocean is very cold. The temperature gets colder and colder when you travel deeper into the ocean, and makes it more harder for us to explore in. the deep ocean is located 1000 of meters under the earth.The deep sea is the lowest layer in the ocean,existing below the depth of 1,000 fathoms(1,800) or more. Facts The average depth of the ocean is more than 2.5 miles
Less than 10% of this living space has been explored by humans
The color blue is least absorbed by seawater; the same shade of blue is most absorbed by microscopic plants, called phytoplankton, drifting in seawater
Eighty percent of all pollution in seas and oceans comes from land-based activities More oil reaches the oceans each year as a result of leaking automobiles and other non-point sources than was spilled in Prince William. Some cold-water corals are 5,000-8,500 years old or more, and some grow into beautiful structures that rise up to 35 meters high.
Deep-sea species tend to be slow growing. By: Lena and Emilie
