Deep-sea trench , also called oceanic trench , any long, narrow, steep-sided depression in the ocean bottom in which occur the maximum oceanic depths, approximately 7, to more than 11, metres 24, to 36, feet. They typically form in locations where one tectonic plate subducts under another. The deepest known depression of this kind is the Mariana Trench , which lies east of the Mariana Islands in the western North Pacific Ocean ; it reaches 11, metres 36, feet at its deepest point. Deep-sea trenches generally lie seaward of and parallel to adjacent island arcs or mountain ranges of the continental margins. They are closely associated with and found in subduction zones —that is, locations where a lithospheric plate bearing oceanic crust slides down into the upper mantle under the force of gravity. The result is a topographic depression where the oceanic plate comes in contact with the overriding plate, which may be either oceanic or continental.

Explorer and businessman Victor Vescovo descended 35, feet 10, meters into the Pacific Ocean, breaking the record for deepest dive ever. At the very bottom, he found colorful rocky structures, weird critters and the ever-pervasive mark of humankind — plastic. Until now, only two people have successfully made it to the bottom of Challenger Deep, the planet's deepest point at the southern end of the Mariana Trench. Back in , oceanographer Don Walsh was the first to make it down to the trench successfully, reaching about 35, feet 10, m. He took the journey with Swiss oceanographer and engineer Jacques Piccard. In the recent dive, Walsh accompanied a team up above on the ship, as Vescovo descended alone in a submersible called the DSV Limiting Factor. It took 3.

Having too much salt can kill many types of plants. Some plants, like pickle weed, can absorb the salt water and store the salt in special compartments, called vacuoles, in the leaves. This makes the plant taste very salty which may be one of the reasons it is called pickle weed. Can you see the other reason in this picture?
A biome is a climate zone used in the game to define what type of surface the soil has sand? A biome is a region in a world with distinct geographical features, flora , heights , temperatures, humidity ratings, and sky and foliage colors. Biomes separate every generated world into different environments, such as forests, jungles, deserts, and taigas. Biomes have a temperature value that determines if it snows or rains. The required temperature values are less than 0.
