The Ocean floor

Tyler Seibert

The continental shelf is the part of the ocean where we swim. We will usually not go off of the shelf unless we are on a boat or ship.

The continental rise connects the steep walls of the continental slope to bottom of the ocean floor. It is covered with sand, mud, and rocks.

The Seamount is a mountain underwater and it can sometimes be a volcano.

The continental slope is a steep drop from the continental shelf and the contenetal rise wand it can be as deep as 2 miles.

The abyssal plain is a flat land on the ocean floor covered with sand, mud, and plant and animal remains.
