Oceans

Chapter 11.1


The ocean floor
The Ocean Floor

  • If you could travel along the floor of the ocean, you would see:

    • The continental shelf

    • The continental slope

    • The abyssal plain

    • The mid-ocean ridge


Shallow water
Shallow Water

  • The continental shelf is a gently sloping, shallow area that extends outward from the edge of the continent.

  • The incline beyond the continental shelf is called the continental slope.


Open ocean
Open Ocean

  • As you follow the ocean floor, it slopes gradually toward the deep ocean.

  • You will come across a broad area covered with thick layers of mud and slit. This is called the abyssal plain.

  • Much farther in you will find a mountain range called the mid-ocean ridge. This is made up of mountains that wind through the oceans.


Deepest depths
Deepest Depths

  • Later you come to a dark gash in the ocean floor. This will be a canyon in the ocean floor called a trench.

  • The trench is so deep that you cannot see the bottom.
