Intertidal zone Biome
Transcript of Intertidal zone Biome
Intertidal zones are located at almost all latitudes. Every shore line in the world is made up of the intertidal zone.
Since the intertidal zone is located on almost every coast, the rainfall varies depending on that specific location. (latitude)
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)
where life is much more abundant
has less extreme temperatures
submerged underwater most always
Example of salt deposit
makes up most, if not all, coast lines
characterized by water movement
breaking waves at a dept of 16-33 feet below tide level
Barnacles, isopods, sculpun, crab, limpets, star fish, mussels, sea anemone, hermit crab, periwinkle snail, etc.
