Answer
A gyre is a large, circular moving loop of water composed of several smaller surface currents (divided into equatorial, western boundary, eastern boundary, northern or southern boundary, and eastern boundary currents).

Five (subtropical) gyres:
1)North Atlantic Gyre
2)South Atlantic Gyre
3)North Pacific Gyre
4)South Pacific Gyre
5)Indian Ocean Gyre

Answer
The CCD is the Calcite Compensation Depth.

Basically Calcium Carbonate dissolves due to the lower temperature, higher pressure, high CO2 content, and acidity of the water at this depth.

I think..
1- tectonic 2- bar-built 3- coastal plain 4- fjord
As for the water mixing, is it salt wedge, partially mixed, well mixed, and fjord type estuaries? I have no idea.

Close! You got the classes of estuaries correct, however, the four main types of water mixing in estuaries are:
1) Vertically Mixed
2) Slightly Stratified
3) Highly Stratified
4) Salt Wedge

and if you could teach me how to use hide that would be great :)
