Arctic infralittoral coarse sediment

Description (English)

Arctic sedimentary habitats in the infralittoral near shore zone, typically extending from the extreme lower shore down to the lower limit for vascular plants. Sediment ranges from boulders and cobbles, through pebbles and shingle, coarse sands, sands, fine sands, muds, and mixed sediments.
