The Intertidal Zone is where the tidal movement ends and segues to the sandy expanse of land and is often associated as the shore. On the other hand estuaries is where the river flow and the wide stretch of the sea meet. When this two important bodies of water are polluted it might cause unpleasant effects to the active circulation of air within its area and will strengthen the air pollution since air pressure and wind activities are active on these zones.
Deforestation results in the harming of the life thriving in the intertidal zones and estuaries. Because denudation inevitable results in silts being transported from the mountains, through the rivers and eventually into the estuaries and intertidal zones, siltation happens.
With siltation, particles like mud or clay interfere with the ecosystem. Organisms like coral polyps require clean and clear water to thrive. With sediments, their growth is hampered. Because the water is not clear, the navigation in the water of certain organisms will also be affected.
In order to mitigate the effects of siltation, mangroves could be planted in the estuaries. These trees that grow in tropical climates had been studied and proven to minimize sedimentation and siltation. Apart from filtering out particles, the roots of the mangroves also serve as habitat for the fish. Mangrove also act as a seawall and buffer against the incoming tide.
Needless to say, the best method is preventing siltation in the first place by ensuring that no forests are denuded.

location: coordinates-26° n 132° e; southeast asia; in the western pacific ocean; the philippine plate lies beneath the philippine sea. classification: the philippine plate is a tectonic plate comprising of oceanic lithosphere.
image result for in what plates the philippine belong
the philippine sea plate. the philippine sea plate is tectonically unusual in that almost all the boundaries are convergent. the pacific plate is subducting beneath the philippine sea plate to the east while the west/northwestern part of the philippine sea plate is subducting beneath the continental eurasian plate.
