2 Map Arctic Ocean Atlantic Ocean Pacific Ocean Indian Ocean  Antarctic Ocean (Southern Ocean) 

3 Longitude and Latitude Antarctic Ocean – S, 0 00 E Antarctic Ocean – S, 0 00 E Arctic Ocean – N, 0 00 E Arctic Ocean – N, 0 00 E Indian Ocean – S, E Indian Ocean – S, E Atlantic Ocean – 0 00 N, W Atlantic Ocean – 0 00 N, W Pacific Ocean – 0 00 N, W Pacific Ocean – 0 00 N, W

4 Climate and Soil of a Marine Biome Climate: Warm near equator, cold near poles. Although the climate is not affected much, the marine biome affects the coast by creating waves. Climate: Warm near equator, cold near poles. Although the climate is not affected much, the marine biome affects the coast by creating waves. Soil: Mostly wet due to the water. Marine biome is composed of water life, so the soil is constantly wet. Soil: Mostly wet due to the water. Marine biome is composed of water life, so the soil is constantly wet.

7 Why does the Marine Biome support so many plants and animals? The marine biome supports so many plants and animals because every living thing needs water to survive. The animals can also live off the plants. Algae creates oxygen for the animals and plants to live off of as well. The marine biome can also support so many plants and animals because it is so big and there are so many marine biomes around the world.

8 Ecological Problems Oil Spills Oil Spills Pollution (including six pack ring holders, which wrap around the animals neck and kill them.)

9 Human Effects Positive – Humans can enjoy the beautiful animals and plants that live in the marine biome. People are constantly working to save the marine biome by creating clubs and groups that fight against the pollution of the waters. Negative – Humans litter in the water, which causes harm to the animals and plants. Example: baby turtles can get stuck in aluminum cans. Our sewage is also dumped into these waters.
