The intertidal zone is the area between the foreshore and the seabed that is exposed to air during low tide and submerged during high tide. The intertidal zone is also sometimes referred to as littoral zone.
An intertidal zones are the area on a beach between high-tide and low-tide points. Although we may typically think of these areas as just sand with some seashells, they are in fact considered an ecosystem. There is nutrients from organic matter washed ashore which become oxygen rich when exposed to the air. We don’t see all living organisms in the intertidal zone because many of them bury themselves to avoid the thrashing of the tide.
