This page needs a map[edit]

The seafloor of the planet's oceans would be much improved with a map of the seafloor. I'm thinking something similar to this image I found on the Continental Shelf page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Elevation.jpg I don't know how to insert a graphic into an article very well, and especially how to get the legend in appropriately. Moreover, I am uncertain that this would be the best image. What do others think? N2e (talk) 00:22, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

seabed vs ocean floor[edit]

It may sound pedantic but I think that seabed and ocean floor should be distinguished. Seabed is a term that can be usefully restricted to shallower waters, i.e. continental shelf, whereas ocean floor should be reserved for the bottom of the oceans. Everybody got to be somewhere!

Undue weight?[edit]

I have reinstated a brief paragraph about the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage. This was removed with the comment that the paragraph had undue weight. It doesn't seem like undue weight to me. --Epipelagic (talk) 01:03, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Merger Proposal with Benthic Zone[edit]

I believe that this page should be merged with the page titled "Benthic Zone". The Benthos page says:

Benthos is the community of organisms which live on, in, or near the seabed, also known as the benthic zone.

If the benthic zone and the seabed are in fact the same thing, they ought to be merged. Neither page is excessively long, and more information on the same topic can be displayed. Mr. Guye (talk) 03:26, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
