Ocean Deep (Abyssal Zone, Benthic Zone)
Transcript of Ocean Deep (Abyssal Zone, Benthic Zone)
At the lowest level of a body of water like in the ocean.
This water is high pressured, high in oxygen, but low in nutritional content
This climate is very cold usually around 3 Degrees Celcius.
The salinity of the water is between 34.6 and 35.0 parts per thousand
Abyssal waters originate at air-sea interface in polar regions. In Antartic regions it produces sea ice and residual cold brine.
The abyssal zone is between 2,000 and 6,000 meters (6,560 to 19,680 feet)
The abyssal zone has an abundant of lifeforms around deep ocean vents. The vents have elevated temperatures.
The Organisms adapt to
Low to no light
Red Algae Seaweed
Deep Sea Anglerfish
Infamous Giant Squid
Giant Tube Worms
The Anglerfish adapts to the
deep ocean because it can withstand a lot of pressure and it has an underslung jaw to catch fish in sand.
Have to handle dissolved salt in water
Ocean plants anchor themselves with a keep fast to hold them down from currents.
Deep Ocean plants have air sacks and gas sacs to help with photosynthesis to get sunlight.
