Tide Pool Physical Factors

Marine life that lives in this environment is subjected to very harsh physical conditions. These conditions include huge waves that continually pound the plants and animals, constantly being submerged in sea water and then exposed to air, rapidly changing temperatures both in the water and air and quickly changing saltiness or salinity of the water. These are called abiotic factors or non-biological factors.

  • Physical force like wave action, logs, debris
  • Chemical factors – PH, Salinity
  • Water – drying out, having water to use
  • Temperature – too hot, too cold
  • Sun light – too bright, too dark
  • Posted in Patterns.
