I am doing a chemistry assessment on shipwrecks, and I was wondering how shipwrecks and salvage affect the non-living components of the environment?

Assuming that there is no bad cargo and not much fuel, The vastness of the ocean makes an individual shipwreck less effect on nonliving things that a grain of sand on a beach.

This is not the thrust that your teacher wants. Get the reference books out and find out what happens to various metals when submerged in seawater. Then, how much effect does that have on the environment. Trust me, it has a lot more effect in a small bay than it does 100 miles out in the ocean and several hundred feet down.

You have a lot more light in shallow water and totally different kinds of "critters" living there.

If you present a brief hypothesis, I'm fairly confident that someone may tell you that you are on the right track or point out a rash assumption and get you steered straight again.

But your posting looks like you have no intention of even thinking about your assignment and are just asking somebody to do your homework for you.
