Restructuring around BiodiversityEdit

I have restructured the previous chapters “Ecology and Biota” and “Environmental History”. They were confusing and overlapping. I have changed their names to the more apt “Biodiversity” and “Environmental Issues”.

There was little info in “Ecology and Biota / Biodiversity” before. I have moved some text from a subchapter that was also called “Biodiversity” in the previous “Environmental History” into the new “Biodiversity” chapter, including links to species lists, and also added a bit about killer whales.

Finally I changed the title of that old “Biodiversity” subchapter in “Environmental Issues” to “Invasive species”.

The Biodiversity chapter could need some rewriting as it is now.

I still consider moving the paragraphs on invasive species into the Biodiversity chapter, as this is the environmental issue that is closely linked to biodiversity both in cause and effect. Comments or adjustments are welcome! — Preceding unsigned comment added by RomdalDK (talkcontribs) 16:46, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Drainage basinEdit

Mr IP, a Drainage basin of the Mediterranean Sea is all the land such that surface water will eventually drain into the sea - even if it passes through another country (via a river, for example) first. That is why some land locked nations are still listed on the Basin countries list in the infobox. - MrOllie (talk) 17:40, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

No landlocked countries should border the seaEdit

I don't understand why you add landlocked countries. They don't border a sea. Can you tell me why you should add landlocked countries? I would appreciate!

Read what is written directly above your message. - Takeaway (talk) 18:44, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 17 January 2017Edit

Could you please stop adding landlocked countries in the Mediterranean Sea? They don't have access to the sea. Thanks! 92.96.100.140 (talk) 15:21, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

  Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. Sir Joseph (talk) 15:48, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
The IP(s) has/have repeatedly been explained about the concept Drainage basin and why landlocked countries can be part of the Mediterranean's drainage basin. Either they don't read what they have been shown or they are just trolling. Seeing how long this has been going on now, the latter seems most plausible. - Takeaway (talk) 16:36, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Coastal or "offshore" oil and gas fieldsEdit

Some info for the new section: British Gas (BG Group) and its partner, the Athens based Consolidated Contractors International Company (CCC) owned by Lebanon's Sabbagh and Koury families, were granted oil and gas exploration rights in a 25 year agreement signed in November 1999 with the Palestinian Authority. The rights to the offshore gas field are respectively British Gas (60 percent); Consolidated Contractors (CCC) (30 percent); and the Investment Fund of the Palestinian Authority (10 percent). (Haaretz, October 21, 2007). The PA-BG-CCC agreement includes field development and the construction of a gas pipeline.(Middle East Economic Digest, Jan 5, 2001). The BG licence covers the entire Gazan offshore marine area, which is contiguous to several Israeli offshore gas facilities. It should be noted that 60 percent of the gas reserves along the Gaza-Israel coastline belong to Palestine. The BG Group drilled two wells in 2000: Gaza Marine-1 and Gaza Marine-2. Reserves are estimated by British Gas to be of the order of 1.4 trillion cubic feet, valued at approximately 4 billion dollars. These are the figures made public by British Gas. Both Gaza Marine-1 and Gaza Marine-2 are very near shore, far closer than the rightful Palestine EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone) limits.

Restructuring the Oceanography sectionEdit

I have added precisions on water circulation under the oceanography section. I'm thinking of separating this section from the geography one and make it a full section. I would then add subsections on biogeochemistry and chemical oceanography in the oceanography section. Camcolibri1 (talk) 03:02, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

Oceanography and biogeochemistry sectionsEdit

I separated the oceanography section from the geography one and gave more details on water circulation and the impacts on climate change.

I also added a section on biogeochemistry.

Feel free to add any detail. And I think pictures could be nice. I didn't find and chlorophyll concentration map on wikimedia, but if someone find one, that'd be grand. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Camcolibri1 (talkcontribs) 09:58, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Shallowness and stormsEdit

Cannot find a source online, but once read Med is prone to storms, their suddenness and ferocity exacerbated by the shallowness of the Sea. Anarchangel (talk) 16:13, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
