Pacific Ocean

WHS related to the Pacific Ocean, where
a. boundary of the core zone touches the Ocean coast (including the "tideway" of estuaries)
OR
b. OUV mentions the Pacific Ocean

"Marginal seas" that have their own connection take precedence over the connection with the Pacific Ocean (elsewhere the Ocean is applied)

Suggestions?

Do you know of another WHS we could connect to Pacific Ocean?

Send it to me!

A connection should:

  1. Not be "self evident"
  2. Link at least 3 different sites
  3. Not duplicate or merely subdivide the "Category" assignment already identified on this site.
  4. Add some knowledge or insight (whether significant or trivial!) about WHS for the users of this site
  5. Be explained, with reference to a source
