I'm not too sure about this answer... The abyssal plains usually "start" when the continental margin ends (at the end of the continental rise). So basically, wherever the continental margin ends will dictate where the abyssal plain is.

Name the 3 main types of breaking waves and indicate what type of beaches (characteristics of the beach) on which the different types (of breaking waves) occur.

[list][*]Spilling breakers on gently-sloped beaches [*]Plunging breakers on moderately-sloped beaches [*]Surging breakers on steeply-sloped beaches[/list]
EDIT: Just in case I'm right:
What is the average salinity of the ocean?
35 ppt but can vary from 32-37 ppt

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%.
