Intertidal Zones
Some parts of the beach are higher than others, and some rocks are higher than others. This means that the water reaches some parts during high tides, but not others; and some parts may be below the water except during minus tides. This creates four zones, or regions of the beaches or rocks that are affected by the water in different ways. We call these intertidal zones.....
