  • Plunging breakers on moderately-sloped beaches
  • Surging breakers on steeply-sloped beaches

Answer
I like using psu (practical salinity units) which would be 1.035, but most people use ppt which is 35. A more technical way to put it is 3.5% out of 100%.

I'm pretty sure this is from last year's topic, but
A moraine is a ridge of deposited sediments from a glacier. There are multiple types of moraines like a medial moraine, terminal moraine, end moraine, and ground moraine.

Answer
Run-off from erosion on land, Volcanic plumes from hot spots and hydrothermal vents/ salts in old oceanic seafloor, and human waste/ output into the ocean.
