    Ocean Zones Matching

    2.

    2. distribution

    The area that covers the entire ocean if water above the sea bottom. It includes the Neritic and Oceanic Zones.

    3.

    3. pelagic

    Water formed from the mixing of ocean salt water and freshwater4.

    4. benthic

    The area of the ocean beneath the photic zone; it is dark because sunlight does not penetrate to that depth.

    5.

    5. coastal (or neritic)

    Extends from the intertidal, to the continental shelf, to the continental slope, to the deep ocean floor

    6.

    6. oceanic

    All of the ocean beyond the continental shelf, it is by far the most extensive7.

    7. littoral

    Plant-like protists, many are single-celled but some are multi-celled, that carry out photosynthesis.

    8.

    8. Subtidal Zone

    The up-and-down movement of the ocean surface as a result of energy moving across the water.

    9.

    9. Intertidal Zone

    The entire ocean floor from the intertidal zone to the depths of the ocean basin

    10.

    10. Supratidal Zone

    The area in the ocean located between high tide and low tide.11.

    11. Benthic Zone

    The amount of salt dissolved in water.12.

    12. Neritic Zone

    The area in the ocean beneath the intertidal zone where there is heavy wave impact and which is affected by underwater turbulence.

    13.

    13. Pelagic Zone

    The daily rise and fall of the ocean seen along the shore due to gravity.14.

    14. Aphotic Zone

    The area in the ocean beyond the subtidal zone. It is the water that lies above the continental shelf

    15.

    15. Algae

    The nearshore ocean environment, that which occurs above the continental shelf

    16.

    16. Tide

    All waters of the ocean17.

    17. Salinity

    Describes the different zones or areas of the marine environment18.

    18. Wave

    The area in the ocean above the intertidal zone up to the sand dunes.19.

    19. Benthos

    Includes the supratidal zone (or spray zone), intertidal zone, which occurs between the highest and lowest tides in an area, and the subtidal zone, which is always covered by seawater, and extends int

    20.

    20. Brackish Water

    The bottom of an aquatic environment
