Transcript of Intertidal zone Biome

Intertidal zone
Intertidal zones are located at almost all latitudes. Every shore line in the world is made up of the intertidal zone.
Average Rainfall
Since the intertidal zone is located on almost every coast, the rainfall varies depending on that specific location. (latitude)
Intertidal Temperatures
There are a wide range of temperatures possible for the intertidal zone.
If the intertidal zone is in the arctic, it will be much colder than an intertidal zone in the tropics.

Amount of Sunlight
The intertidal zone gets the most amount of sunlight out of any other marine zone.
The intertidal zone has two zones:
tide pools form
-the salinity of tide pools varies from the salinity of the sea to much less salty
-rain water and runoff dilutes it
-animals must constantly adapt their systems
during low tide the water evaporates leaving salt deposits behind
This is an image of the different tidal zones around the world.
It all depends on the location of the area
of shore line you want to know
splash zone and spray zone (water during a storm)
high tide

where life is much more abundant

has less extreme temperatures
low tide

submerged underwater most always

intertidal zone???
Example of salt deposit
