Abstract
    Water movement is shown to be a very important environmental factor. It largely determines the distribution of substrates and the position and shape of organisms, especially in sedentary inhabitants of rocky littoral areas. In spite of its great ecological significance, water movement has not yet been measured in these areas. However, earlier information obtained in the fields of oceanography, geology and geomorphology, as well as in connection with marine construction, offer sufficient background data to assess the major hydrodynamic phenomena in littoral habitats. Thus scientific diving made it possible in numerous cases to relate cause and effect. The relations observed are documented by one example in each case and analysed on the basis of 5 different aspects.
