From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The wrack zone is part of the shore just above the mean high tide line where kelp is deposited on the sand. This area is identified by the piles of kelp and other debris (e.g. old pier pilings, driftwood), and is often located on a slight "shelf" above the moist sand that slopes down toward the water.
