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
uh when you have your question don't put the 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%.

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.
