    Coal is found in deeper layers of earth. To retrieve coal from those layers, underground tunnels need to build. These underground tunnels tend to fill with ground water. To prevent this, steam pumps were installed to keep the tunnels dry. The groundwater pumped out of the mines is “comparatively clean” (Wilkinson 2011, 3). Once the steam pump is shut off, the underground water is able to fill up the abandoned mine over years. After all tunnels are filled up, the water finds a way to release itself

    Organisms that live in intertidal zones along coastal environments face many challenges in order to survive. These challenges include alternate exposure to air and water, high salinity, extreme variability in temperature, significant abrasion, and limited oxygen availability (Snelgrove 2001). Organisms have developed a variety of adaptations in order to overcome these obstacles and survive in their environment. To combat these hypoxic conditions, molluscs have developed a number of adaptations that

    coasts are usually formed geologically from an uplifting of the earths crust exposing the bedrock. It is known that these coasts are new because sediment has not had time to accumulate along the coast. The tide pools are found in the intertidal zone. In this zone the seashore covers the rocks during high tide and the rocks are uncovered at low tide. These areas can be observed in many different areas. Some of these areas include the West Coast of America, Eastern Canada, and New England. The
