This page needs a map
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
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!

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
- 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)
Ancient Children's Songs?
I just edited this out -- can the lines, "'There's a hole at the bottom of the sea', or 'A sailor went to sea... but all that he could see was the bottom of the deep blue sea'." really be ancient as the article stated? After all, both tunes referenced make use of modern English rhymes, which seems to preclude "ancient-ness". IdRatherBeFlying (talk) 03:00, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
