Physical Features

The oceanic biome is "determined by physical and chemical environmental factors".(Biome-Major Biomes and their characteristics, par 15) Waves, tides, currents, transitions through oceanic zones, basin-like estuaries, continental shelves, abyssal plains, rises, ridges, and trenches all contribute to the physical aspect of the oceanic biome.(Oceanography and Marine Science, par 8)
