The spatial distribution, composition, and sources of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in sediments and suspended particulate matter (SPM) from the Pearl River Estuary and adjacent coastal areas were examined. Total PAH concentrations varied from 189 to 637 ng/g in sediments and 422 to 1,850 ng/g in SPM. PAHs were dominated by 5,6-ring compounds in sediments and by 2,3-ring compounds in SPM samples. Assessment of PAH sources suggested that biomass and coal combustion is the major PAH source to the outer part of the estuary sediments and that petroleum combustion is the major PAH source to the inner part of estuary sediments. As for SPM samples, PAH isomer pair ratios indicated multiple (petroleum, petroleum combustion, and biomass and coal combustion) PAH sources, and significant temporal variations could exist for the sources of water column PAHs in the study area. The distribution of perylene in SPM samples indicated that the river was the dominant source of perylene in SPM and that perylene
Ten antibiotics belonging to three groups (macrolides, fluoroquinolones and sulfonamides) were investigated in riverine runoff of the Pearl River Delta (PRD) and Pearl River Estuary (PRE), South China for assessing the importance of riverine runoff in the transportation of contaminants from terrestrial sources to the open ocean. All antibiotics were detected in the eight outlets with concentrations ranging from 0.7 to 127 ng L-1. The annual mass loadings of antibiotics from the PRD to the PRE and coast were 193 tons with 102 tons from the fluoroquinolone group. It showed that antibiotics decreased from the riverine outlets to the PRE and open ocean. Risk assessment showed that most of these antibiotics showed various ecological risks to the relevant aquatic organisms, in which ofloxacin (OFL), erythromycin (ETM) and ciprofloxacin (CIP) posed high ecological risks to the studied aquatic environments.

Accurate remote assessment of phytoplankton chlorophyll-a concentration is particularly challenging in estuary areas. The object of this paper is to calibrate the two Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) land bands (band 1 and band 2) for chlorophyll-a concentration remote sensing in Pearl River Estuary, and to assess the accuracy of chlorophyll-a retrieval. A nonlinear two-band model was established between the ratio of band 2 to band 1 and the in situ measurements of chlorophyll-a concentration. The model can estimate chlorophyll-a concentrations with root mean square errors below 4.59 mg m-3, and the relative error of the estimated chlorophyll-a concentrations is generally less than 30%, with chlorophyll-a concentrations in the range 5 to 60 mg m-3. In addition, the influence of the chromophoric dissolved organic matter and total suspended matter are considered, and comparisons of the estimates with in situ data for the control point are also given. The model is then employed ...
At the Pearl River Estuary of southern China, mercury and its environmental problems have long been a great concern. This study investigated the distribution and speciation of mercury compounds that are significantly influenced by the increasing content of humic acid (HA, a model natural organic matter) in this region. The inorganic mercury and methyl mercury, being adsorbed and converted at different HA levels, were studied in sediments and surface water at both mariculture and their reference sites. In mariculture sediments with higher HA content (up to 4.5%), more mercury were adsorbed at different compound levels, promoting the methylation and accumulation of mercury (P , 0.05) at the sediment-water interface. Seasonal shift in environmental temperature might control the HA content, subsequently favouring mercury methylation (maximum 1.75 ± 0.08 mg L⁻¹ d⁻¹) under warm weather conditions. In reference sites received less HA wastes, lower adsorption capacity and methylation rate were ...
An estuary is an unique environment where fresh water and salt water come together. Estuaries are found on the coast where a river or bay or other source of fresh water has access to the open sea. A good example of an estuary is a salt marsh that can be found close to the coast. Another example is when a river feeds directly into the ocean. The largest estuary in the United States is the Chesapeake Bay estuary on the east coast of the U.S. Estuaries are affected by the tides. So, there can be changes of salinity, temperature and other physical properties in an estuarial system which means the organisms there must be very tolerant to change. Even with that consideration, estuaries are among the most fertile places in the world. All kinds of plants and animals live there! When looking at estuaries, scientists quickly realized that these areas were extremely nutrient-rich because of sediment deposit of rivers, creeks or streams feeding into the salt water environment. Unfortunately, estuaries ...
The purpose ofthis document is to describe research, monitoring, and evaluation (RME) for the Federal Columbia River Estuary Program. The intent of this RME effort is to provide data and information to evaluate progress toward meeting program goals and objectives and support decision-making in the Estuary Program. The goal of the Estuary Program is to understand, conserve, and restore the estuary ecosystem to improve the performance of listed salmonid populations. The Estuary Program has five general objectives, designed to fulfill the program goal, as follows. 1. Understand the primary stressors affecting ecosystem controlling factors, such as ocean conditions and invasive species. 2. Conserve and restore factors controlling ecosystem structures and processes, such as hydrodynamics and water quality. 3. Increase the quantity and quality of ecosystem structures, i.e., habitats, juvenile salmonids use during migration through the estuary. 4. Maintain the food web to benefit salmonid performance. 5.
San Francisco Bay and its watersheds are polluted by legacy polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), resulting in the establishment of a total maximum daily load (TDML) that requires a 90% PCB load reduction from municipal stormwater. Green infrastructure (GI) is a multibenefit solution for stormwater management, potentially addressing the TMDL objectives, but planning and implementing GI cost-effectively to achieve management goals remains a challenge and requires an integrated watershed approach. This study used the nondominated sorting genetic algorithm (NSGA-II) coupled with the Stormwater Management Model (SWMM) to find near-optimal combinations of GIs that maximize PCB load reduction and minimize total relative cost at a watershed scale. The selection and placement of three locally favored GI types (bioretention, infiltration trench, and permeable pavement) were analyzed based on their cost and effectiveness. The results show that between optimal solutions and nonoptimal solutions, the ...

Flux calculations demonstrate that many estuaries are natural filters for trace metals. Yet, the underlying processes are poorly investigated. In the present study, it was hypothesized that intertidal marshes contribute significantly to the contaminant filter function of estuaries. Trace metal concentrations and sediment characteristics were measured along a transect from the subtidal, over an intertidal flat and marsh to a restored marsh with controlled reduced tide. Metal concentrations in the intertidal and restored marsh were found to be a factor two to five higher than values in the subtidal and intertidal flat sediments. High metal concentrations and high accretion rates indicate a high metal accumulation capacity of the intertidal marshes. Overbank sedimentation in the tidal marshes of the entire estuary was calculated to remove 25% to 50% of the riverine metal influx, even though marshes comprise less than 8% of the total surface of the estuary. In addition, the large-scale ...
Many important reactions controlling the transfer of elements from the continents to coastal waters and the oceans are taking place in estuaries. For many elements, estuaries can act as filters, capable of reducing the river load of dissolved and particulate elements to the oceans. Although sedimentation is an important process in estuaries, early diagenetic processes in sediments may be responsible for the remobilization of redox-sensitive elements back into estuarine waters. This thesis focuses on the behaviour of suspended and settling particulate Fe - Mn oxides and organic matter in the stratified, low-salinity (< 3‰) Kalix River estuary. In addition, the early diagenetic cycling of Fe, Mn, organic C and trace metals was also studied. Samples of the dissolved (< 0.45 μm) and suspended phase were collected along vertical profiles at three stations in the estuary. Settling particulate matter was collected by the use of sediment traps. Pore-water and solid phase sediment data were used to ...
The effects of fortnightly, semidiurnal, and quaterdiurnal lunar tidal cycles on suspended particle concentrations in the tidal freshwater zone of the Seine macrotidal estuary were studied during periods of medium to low freshwater flow. Long term records of turbidity show semidiurnal and spring neap erosion-sedimentation cycles. During spring tide, the rise in low tide levels in the upper estuary leads to storage of water in the upper estuary. This increases residence time of water and suspended particulate matter (SPM). During spring tide periods, significant tidal pumping, measured by flux calculations, prevents SPM transit to the middle estuary which is characterized by the turbidity maximum zone. On a long term basis, this tidal pumping allows marine particles to move upstream for several tens of kilometers into the upper estuary. At the end of the spring tide period, when the concentrations of suspended particulate matter are at their peak values and the low tide level drops, the transport ...
Estuaries are amongst Canadas rarest and most productive habitats. The dynamic nature of estuaries makes them a hotspot for biodiversity and they are also a migratory stopover habitat both for species moving from the ocean into rivers and for bird species traveling north/south along the coast. Yet the very dynamism that results in such natural productivity has produced a jurisdictional quagmire resulting in very limited protection for these vital elements of Canadas rivers.. Our Living Waters is pleased to partner with Bird Studies Canada and Nature Canada to bring you three leaders working on estuary conservation in BC, Dr. Jonathan Moore, Dr. Tara Martin and lawyer Deborah Carlson. These three leaders will share their thoughts on why estuaries are so important, how estuaries function, some of the threats to the Fraser estuary and ideas on potential measures that can be taken to conserve these ecosystems.. This event is a virtual event and will take place online at 11am PT / 2pm ET / 3pm ...
The features of an estuary are determined by a regions geology, and influenced by physical, chemical, and climatic conditions. For example, movements in the Earth s crust elevate or lower the coastline, changing the amount of seawater that enters an estuary from the ocean. The coastal elevation also determines the rate of fresh water that flows into an estuary from rivers and streams. The amounts of seawater and fresh water flowing into an estuary are never constant. The quantity of seawater in an estuary changes with the changing tides, and the quantity of fresh water flowing into an estuary increases and decreases with rainfall and snowmelt ...

During 1973 data was collected to analyze the seasonal variations of the tidal dynamics, water quality and sediments of the Alsea Estuary. A summary of historical information with a list of all known alterations to the estuary was made. A complete physical description, including the geographical setting and mixing classification of the estuary, was done. Times of high and low water and tidal ranges at three locations were measured. Tide measurements made at Waldport indicated that the published tide predictions for that location were reliable. At a location upstream of the estuary embayment noticeable damping of the tidal wave amplitude was detected during periods of high river flow and high tidal range. High water lag times were found to decrease during periods of high river flow, but low water lag times were unaffected by river flow. The tide motion was found to be a damped, partially standing wave, which altered its behavior according to the volume of water in the estuary. The high and low ...
The degree to which fresh water and saltwater mix in an estuary is measured using isohalines. Isohalines are areas in the water that have equal salt concentrations, or salinities. In estuaries, salinity levels are generally highest near the mouth of a river where the ocean water enters, and lowest upstream where fresh water flows in. To determine isohalines, scientists measure the waters salinity at various depths in different parts of the estuary. They record these salinity measurements as individual data points. Contour lines are drawn connecting data points that have the same salinity measurements. These contour lines showing the boundaries of areas of equal salinity, or isohalines, are then plotted onto a map of the estuary. The shape of the isohalines tells scientists about the type of water circulation in that estuary ...
Bob DowningHURON: An estuary is simply a coastal place thats in between.The Old Woman Creek estuary is different from Lake Erie, and different from other streams that empty into the lake on Ohios North Coast. The estuarys water is generally brackish and chemically different from the lake and the creek.The coastal sanctuary in north-central Ohio also features important ecological habitats. It is a rare and rich wetland.It has one of the longest names you will encounter anywhere: Old Woman Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve and State Nature Preserve. The 573-acre reserve, popular with birders, lies 3 miles east of Huron on U.S. 6 in Erie County.The semi-enclosed wetland is one of the finest natural estuaries in the Great Lakes and an important spot for the study of coastal habitats. Much of the preserve is undeveloped and off-limits to visitors because of its sensitive ecosystems and scientific research.More than 90 percent of Ohios historical wetlands have been lost.

Residents on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border are working to save a coastal habitat thats vital to both countries. The Tijuana River Estuary is a natural oasis in the midst of a growing metropolis that is in trouble. Like dozens of other Estuaries in the U.S., its being choked by sediment and pollution from development upstream. Addressing these problems can be difficult anywhere, but complicating the situation in Tijuana is the fact that while the Estuary is entirely within the US, the river which feeds it and its watershed, are in Mexico. Living on Earths senior correspondent Peter Thomson reports in the latest installment in our series on estuaries. He says residents on both sides of the border are working together to save the coastal habitat.
Water quality in the Shark River estuary was strongly influenced by seasonal patterns of rainfall, water level and temperature. During the rainy season (summer and early fall) the salinity in the 20-mile long estuary ranged from that of fresh water to half that of sea water while concentrations of dissolved oxygen were low, 2-5 milligrams per liter (mg/l) presumably because, among other factors, microbial activity and respiration were accelerated by high temperatures (30-33 degrees C). During the dry season (late fall through spring) the salinity ranged from 18 grams per liter (g/l) in the headwaters to 36 g/l at the Gulf during a dry year such as 1967 and from 1 to 25 g/l during a wet year such as 1969. Concentrations of dissolved oxygen increased from 2-3 mg/l in the summer of 1967 to 4-7 mg/l in the winter of 1968, and temperature decreased from an...

1. Pervasive and accelerating changes to ecosystems due to human activities remain major sources of uncertainty in predicting the structure and dynamics of ecological communities. Understanding which biotic interactions within natural multitrophic communities are weakened or augmented by invasions of non-native species in the context of other environmental pressures is needed for effective management. 2. We used multivariate autoregressive models with detailed time-series data from largely freshwater and brackish regions of the upper San Francisco Estuary to assess the topology, direction and strength of trophic interactions following major invasions and establishment of non-native zooplankton in the early 1990s. We simultaneously compared the effects of fish and clam predation, environmental temperature and salinity intrusion using time-series data from , 60 monitoring locations spanning more than three decades. 3. We found changes in the networks of biotic interactions in both regions after ...

Floodplain inundation is one of the major factors that has shaped the geography, flora and fauna of Californias Central Valley. As in most developed regions of the western United States, the majority of the historical floodplain has been lost to dam and levee construction. However, California was fortunate in that early flood engineers retained relatively large areas of floodplain as part of the flood management system. The largest contiguous floodplain area of the lower Sacramento River (the primary tributary of the San Francisco Estuary) is the Yolo Bypass, a 24,000 ha basin. The Bypass is a central feature of the Sacramento River Flood Control Project, which conveys floodwaters from the major valley rivers including the Sacramento, American, and Feather Rivers, and their tributary watersheds. Seasonal inundation of the Yolo Bypass is one of the most dramatic seasonal events in Californias Sacramento Valley. The Yolo Bypass typically floods in about 60 percent of years, when high winter and ...
Historical Ecology Studies synthesize diverse historical data to enhance understanding of the ecological, hydrological, and geomorphic conditions of a particular region prior to major Euro-American modification. Drawing on sources such as historical maps, landscape and aerial photographs, textual accounts, and early surveys, the studies will reconstruct comprehensive pictures of landscape-scale patterns and local variability. Findings from the studies are compiled into illustrated technical reports describing historical conditions and processes and discussing implications for management and restoration. At the present time, we have partnered with the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project, the University of Southern California (History and Geography Dept.), and the San Francisco Estuary Institute. We plan to continue our efforts in working these organizations and hope to encourage other local agencies to get involved in historical ecology projects in their local communities. This ...
ABSTRACT. The concentrations of select metals (Cd, Co, Cu, Fe, Pb, Ni and Zn) within the water column and sediment of the permanently open Kariega Estuary and temporary open/closed Riet and East Kleinemonde Estuaries were investigated during a dry and a wet season. Enrichment factors (EFs), using Fe as a reference element, and baseline linear regression models for metals vs Fe were used to assess the extent of metal enrichment in the sediments. The results of the study indicate that Cd, Co Ni and Pb were enriched above baseline concentrations (1.0 , EF , 4.1) in the sediments of all three estuaries. Co, Pb and Ni enrichment in the Kariega Estuary sediments was significantly higher during the dry season, and the mean concentrations of Pb and Cd in the water column were 19-fold and 66-fold higher in the dry season. The elevated concentration of metals during the dry season could be related to accumulation of diffuse pollution from human activities within the catchment area. Conversely, inflow of ...
A model to simulate the time evolution of river delta formation process is presented. Estuary Landforms. When the river enters the sea or any other watercourse, where the flow of water is slow and cannot further carry the sediment brought by the river, the sediment is dropped at the river mouth and which results in the formation of a delta.It is not exactly same as an estuary, which is a coastal water body, where the river meets the sea or any other watercourse, with brackish water. Estuaries and their surrounding wetlands are bodies of water usually found where rivers meet the sea. CLI tool to visualise CloudFormation templates as draw.io diagrams.

Organochlorine contaminants including 12 polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners and 18 insecticides were determined in water, pore water and sediments of the Jiulong River Estuary and Western Xiamen Sea, China. The results showed that the levels of the total PCBs ranged from non-detectable to 1500 ng l-1 in water, from 209 to 3870 ng l-1 in pore water, and from 2.78 to 14.8 ng g-1 dry weight in sediments. Total organochlorine insecticide concentrations were from below the limit of detection to 2480 ng l-1 in water, from 267 to 33400 ng l-1 in pore water, and from 4.22 to 46.3 ng g-1 dry weight in sediments. Concentrations of PCBs and insecticides in pore water were significantly higher than those in surface water, due to the high affinity of these hydrophobic compounds for sediment phase. The PCB congeners with the highest concentrations were CB153, CB180 and CB194, which together accounted for 6887% of total PCBs in water, pore water and sediment. Among the hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) ...

N2 - Vegetation enhances bank stability and sedimentation to such an extent that it can modify river patterns, but how these processes manifest themselves in full-scale estuarine settings is poorly understood. On the one hand, tidal flats accrete faster in the presence of vegetation, reducing the flood storage and ebb dominance over time. On the other hand flow-focusing effects of a tidal floodplain elevated by mud and vegetation could lead to channel concentration and incision. Here we study isolated and combined effects of mud and tidal marsh vegetation on estuary dimensions. A 2-D hydromorphodynamic estuary model was developed, which was coupled to a vegetation model and used to simulate ...

Case study 2: Seal Marsh. Scenario. Objective. Assessment of likely significant effect Appropriate assessment. Scenario. Expansion of an existing organic chemical manufacturing plant which will discharge directly into the mouth of an estuary. The effluent will contain increased quantities of copper (5 mg.l-)1 and phthalates - principally DNBP (20 mg.l-1), but lower concentrations of other phthalates may also be present.. Instead of the current short outfall, it is proposed to build a longer outfall to discharge closer to the mouth of the estuary where greater mixing is available. Extensive salt marshes are present in the estuary on the opposite side to the chemical works, and Spartina (which recently established itself at a number of sites on the intertidal flats) is now expanding in area, leading to locally increased sediment accumulation rates. The outer estuary is used by breeding seals.. The site is designated for Annex I habitat (estuary) and Annex II species (common seal).. The ...
Sediment Transport and Diffusion: Columbia Estuary and Entrance. Review of past studies and investigations, including prototype measurements and hydraulic model tests; reveal some indications of sediment transport and diffusion in the vicinity of the Columbia Estuary and Entrance. These indications reveal a unique pattern of sediment transport and diffusion prevailing in this region. This leads to the conclusion that the estuary is acting as a trap for collection of bottom sediments and that, immediately offshore, the forces of erosion and accretion have established a regime that is also worthy of detailed further study.
The prevailing processes in the estuary clearly determine many of these characteristic features. It is therefore important to have a sound appreciation of what processes one might expect to find and how to go about determining the relative importance of the different processes. Fortunately this is an area that has been the subject of considerable research and as a result there is a lot of background information available. A good starting point is a number of standard texts on the subject of which there are many. For example, from a physical perspective the books by Ippen (1966), McDowell & OConnor (1977), and Dyer (1997) provide a useful introduction and from a more geomorphological perspective, books by Pethick (1984), Carter (1988), and Carter and Woodroffe (1994) have chapters on estuaries.. The estuary is an area of transition from the tidal conditions seaward to the freshwater flows from landward. Not only does this involve a change from the reversing tidal flow to the uni‑directional ...

Flame retardant chemical additives are incorporated into consumer goods to meet flammability standards, and many have been detected in environmental matrices. A uniquely wide-ranging characterization of flame retardants was conducted, including polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and 52 additional brominated, chlorinated, or phosphate analytes, in water, sediment, bivalves, and harbor seal blubber of San Francisco Bay, a highly urbanized estuary once considered a hot spot for PBDE contamination. Among brominated flame retardants, PBDEs remained the dominant contaminants in all matrices, though declines have been observed over the last decade following their phase-out. Hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) and other hydrophobic, brominated flame retardants were commonly detected at lower levels than PBDEs in sediment and tissue matrices. Dechlorane Plus (DP) and related chlorinated compounds were also detected at lower levels or not at all across all matrices. In contrast, phosphate flame retardants ...
The Wouri estuary, or Cameroon estuary is a large tidal estuary in Cameroon where several rivers come together, emptying into the Bight of Biafra. Douala, the largest city in Cameroon, is at the mouth of the Wouri River where it enters the estuary. The estuary contains extensive mangrove forests, which are being damaged by pollution and population pressures. The estuary lies to the east of Mount Cameroon and empties into the Bight of Biafra. It is fed by the Mungo, Wouri and Dibamba rivers. The estuary lies in the Douala Basin, a low-lying depression about 30 metres (98 ft) on average about sea level, with many creeks, sand bars and lagoons. The Plio-Pleistocene Wouri alluvial aquifer, a multi-layer system with alternating sequences of marine sands and estuarine mud and silt lies below the estuary and surrounding region and is an important source of well water. The upper aquifer in this system is an unconfined sandy horizon that is hydraulically connected to the brackish waters of the estuary ...

The estuary is one of the few remaining salt marshes on the South Coast. Its location positions it under the path of the Pacific Flyway, where it serves as a stopover point.[1] It is the largest remaining natural coastal area between Santa Barbara, California and San Quintín, Baja California.[3] Three times the size of Central Park, the estuary covers about 2,500 acres.[4] Many species of migratory and native species rely on the estuary as an essential breeding, feeding, and nesting habitat.[1] The estuary lies within the southernmost part of San Diego County within the city limits of the South Bay city of Imperial Beach. Prior to 1994, foot traffic by illegal immigration was a major source of top soil erosion. After 1994, off-road vehicle usage for policing has become a major cause of soil loss. Beginning in 2010, a re-vegetation effort along the Border Infrastructure System has occurred.[5] ...
The benthic macroinvertebrates and the zooplankton of the shallow (,1.5 m deep) sandy middle regions of the Peel-Harvey Estuary and of the nearby Swan Estuary were sampled seasonally between the winters of 1986 and 1987. Measurements were also taken of the environmental variables in the benthos and in the water column.. In comparison with the Swan Estuary, the Peel-Harvey Estuary is highly nutrient enriched and is not as well flushed. As a consequence, the water in the basins of the Peel-Harvey experience large seasonal blooms of the blue-green alga Nodularia spumigena and massive growths of benthic and drifting green algae. The first led to marked seasonal declines in redox values, secchi depths and nocturnal dissolved oxygen and, together with the decomposition of the macroalgae, resulted in a marked increase in particulate organic matter in the sediments.. The following comparisons between the benthic invertebrate fauna in the Peel- Harvey with that of the Swan Estuary are consistent with the ...
Discussion Long-term study. The objectives of this study were to determine the microalgal biomass and community composition in the Sundays Estuary. Results show a unique case where the chlorophyll a blooms in the estuary consist of multiple microalgal groups. High chlorophyll a concentrations (,20 μgℓ-1) in the shallow upper reaches of the Sundays Estuary have previously been found where nitrate concentrations were greater than 14 μM, water residence time was 6 - 7 tidal cycles and where there was marked salinity stratification (Hilmer and Bate, 1991; Adams and Bate, 1999; Scharler, 2000). Scharler (2000) recorded a bloom in the middle and upper reaches of the Sundays Estuary and recorded a mean chlorophyll biomass of 22 μgℓ-1 at nitrate concentrations of 33 μM in the upper reaches. Similarly, in the Great Fish Estuary consistent freshwater inflow carrying a high nutrient load supported high (,20 μgℓ-1) phytoplankton biomass (Allanson and Read, 1995). High (,20 μgℓ-1) chlorophyll a ...
Intertidal photosynthetic microbial mats from the Wadden Sea island Schiermonnikoog were examined for microscale (millimetre) spatial distributions of viruses, prokaryotes and oxygenic photoautotrophs (filamentous cyanobacteria and benthic diatoms) at different times of the year. Abundances of viruses and prokaryotes were among the highest found in benthic systems (0.05-5.43 × 1010 viruses g−1 and 0.05-2.14 × 1010 prokaryotes g−1). The spatial distribution of viruses, prokaryotes and oxygenic photoautotrophs were highly heterogeneous at mm scales. The vertical distributions of both prokaryotic and viral abundances were related to the depth of the oxygenic photoautotrophic layer, implying that the photosynthetic mat fuelled the microbial processes in the underlying layer. Our data suggest that viruses could make an important component in these productive environments potentially affecting the biodiversity and nutrient cycling within the mat.
Herbicides pose a potential threat to aquatic ecosystems, especially to phototrophic organisms such as benthic diatoms. Benthic diatoms may be a valuable indicator of the toxic impacts of herbicides in aquatic systems. However, this requires information on the herbicide sensitivity of a wide range of freshwater benthic diatom taxa. Unfortunately this information is only available for a limited number of species as current methods of developing new algae toxicity tests on individual taxa are lengthy and costly. To address this issue, we developed a new rapid toxicity test method to test natural benthic communities, from which the relative herbicide sensitivity of many individual taxa can be derived. This involved the collection of natural benthic communities from rocks in situ, which were placed directly into laboratory toxicity tests. Sensitivity data for several diatom genera in a 48 hour exposure toxicity test were produced, without the need for cultures or multiple site visits. After exposure ...

Sediments from the Mersey Estuary were analysed for polycylic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Total PAH concentrations ranged from 626 to 3766 μg/kg and total PCB concentrations ranged from 36 to 1409 μg/kg. These concentrations are intermediate in comparison to other U.K estuaries with similar histories of industrialisation and urbanisation. The distribution of individual PAHs were consistent throughout the Mersey Estuary, this together with molecular indices suggests mainly pyrolitic inputs, augmented by a variety of industrial petrogenic sources. Comparison of tri-to-hepta PCB congeners revealed multiple sources and inputs throughout the estuary. A sediment core collected in close proximity to Garston Docks revealed the take-off, peak pollutant input and recent decline of PCB pollution. However, a second depth profile of sediments at Ellesmere Port showed little change in total or individual PCB concentrations due to extensive sediment reworking and ...
As environmental regulatory and management agencies (most notably the Environmental Protection Agency) move toward a broad set of management goals to protect ecosystem health, developing an adequate definition for ecosystem health has become increasingly important. This work is a multidisciplinary collection of perspectives on the concept of health as it relates to ecosystems. The contributors - leading ecologists, philosophers, and economists - analyze the normative, conceptual, and biological issues surrounding the idea of ecosystem health. They examine both theoretical and practical aspects of the issues, and look at philosophical and ethical underpinnings as well as implications for public policy and ecosystems management. Ecosystem Health is a groundbreaking attempt to formulate an understanding of the quality and health of natural environments so that regulatory mandates can be brought in line with legislative goals. Ultimately, it seeks a new ethic of sustainability that will serve to protect
Abstract: In this paper, the development of a three-dimensional numerical pollutant transport model, which is coupled with a previously developed hydrodynamic model, is delineated in details. Special features of the model include orthogonal curvilinear coordinate in the horizontal direction and sigma coordinate in the vertical direction. Besides, a simple but efficient open boundary condition of pollutant transport is adopted. It is then applied to simulate the transport of a representative water quality parameter chemical oxygen demand in Manganese (CODMn) in the Pearl river estuary, which is the largest estuary in South China. It can be shown, from the simulated results, that there exists a transboundary action between Guangdong province and Hong Kong special administrative region for the pollutants in the wastewater discharged from Pearl river delta region..

The known macroalgal flora of the Balleny Islands, Southern Ocean, has more than doubled as a result of expeditions to the area over the past 8 years and their subsequent study is reported here.. The samples collected as part of a benthic survey at Borradaile Island, one of the Balleny Islands group, during the 2006 Tiama expedition have been analysed to provide an assessment of benthic community structure. We provide a quantitative assessment of shallow water macrofaunal community composition and seafloor sediment characteristics, and a more qualitative assessment of seafloor habitat structure and epifaunal/floral community composition. The Borradaile Island sites were located in a high energy environment, sediments had relatively high organic and chlorophyll a content, and considerably lower concentrations of degraded plant material (phaeophytin) than noted in previously surveyed southern Ross Sea locations. This could be a reflection of the higher light levels and the large amount of algal ...

Biogeochemical measurements from 1978-2003 were analyzed to develop a carbon and nutrient budget for the Delaware Bay estuary using a box-model. Two different box-models were constructed to calculate nutrient transport and production throughout the estuary. The first consisted of a single box to capture estuary wide net production and transport, the second was comprised of four boxes in the salinity gradient. The models indicated massive amounts of nutrient production, specifically NO3 and NH4 in the estuary. Overall heterotrophy was prominent in the upper regions and shifted to autotrophic tendencies in the lower estuary. Box-model calculations were then compared to geochemistry data in the upper river and box-models of other similar estuaries, including Chesapeake Bay and Roskilde Fjord. With further analysis, the upper regions of the estuary exhibited uncharacteristically higher production of both NO3 and NH4 (almost twenty times higher). Competition between nitrification and remineralization ...
What should be immediately apparent, and which has direct taphonomic implications, is the intense intermingling of a variety of habitats. You have the river/estuarine system, which can contain not only organisms who live in these systems- but also any organisms from the surrounding habitats of the watershed that get flushed down the river. In fact during heavy flood events piles of debris get pushed down the river and deposited on the beach. One of the most common animals found in these debris flows that survives- rattlesnakes. And of course right next door to the river estuary is a high surf/intertidal zone. This beach in particular is noted for heavy surf and rip tides. What may or not be apparent is that this storm surge routinely breaks the berm and floods into the estuary. Along with saltwater intrusion that is left behind, any other debris (i.e. bodies) that the ocean coughs up are left behind- often times on the estuarine side of the berm. What should become immediately apparent from a ...

Medications, personal hygiene, mask-wearing and quarantines all help prevent the spread of viral infections such as the flu, and researchers now suggest that the latter three strategies should be given more attention in plans to deal with pandemics.
The Climate Ready Estuaries program works with the National Estuary Programs (NEP) and the coastal management community to: (1) assess climate change vulnerabilities, (2) develop and implement adaptation strategies, and (3) engage and educate stakeholders. CRE shares NEP examples to help other coastal managers, and provides technical guidance and assistance about climate change adaptation. Estuaries and coastal areas are particularly vulnerable to climate variability and change. CRE seeks to help coastal managers protect ecosystems from projected impacts of sea level rise, increasing temperatures, and other effects. The Climate Ready Estuaries website offers information on climate change impacts to different estuary regions, access to tools and resources to monitor changes, and information to help managers develop adaptation plans for estuaries and coastal communities.. ...
The results of particle size measurements in several estuaries with a Coulter counter, by pipette analysis and with a Plankton camera that gives the in situ size are discussed. The in situ size distribution of flocs is probably the result of a complex interaction of processes that induce flocculation. In estuaries, the kinetics of the processes in relation to the tidal cycle are particularly important. There is no evidence for an influence of salinity on in situ floc size distributions. In situ flocs are smaller than the turbulent whirls and probably do not break up after their formation. The floc break-up that occurs during sampling and analysis is an indication of the firmness (strength) of the flocs. The salinity increase at the fresh-saline water contact reduces the floc strength by mobilizing natural polymers (polysaccharides). ...

Tidal marshes cover only about 45,000 square kilometers worldwide--about the area of Denmark. In comparison with other habitats, tidal marshes support few nonaquatic vertebrate species, but their unique characteristics have led to the evolution of species and subspecies that are endemic (found nowhere else). These endemic species and subspecies, which seem to be largely restricted to North America, have adaptations that suit them to life in a harsh environment in which seed abundance is low, salinity is high, and flooding is frequent. Yet they face a broad variety of threats from human-caused environmental damage, according to an assessment in the August 2006 issue of BioScience written by Russell Greenberg of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and colleagues.. Tidal marshes occur in mid to high latitudes, along coasts that are protected within estuaries or behind barrier islands. They are most common in North America and China. Some tidal marsh species are protected from high salinity by ...

For all dates during 1994, samplings were made within 2 hours of high tide, except for samples that have a station designation of low, which were collected within 2 hours of low tide. For all other dates, samples were collected Salinity was measured using a refractometer or calculated from conductivity. Conductivity was measured using a Hydrolab H2O probe with a Scout 2 Water Quality Data System. Temperature was measured using the Hydrolab H2O probe or a field thermometer. Conductivity and temperature have also been measured using a YSI Sonde probe since 2004. A secchi disk was used to obtain the secchi depth, which was considered to be the shallowest depth at which black and white sections of the disk were indistinguishable. During 1994, approximately 10 liters of water were collected in an HDPE carboy. 1 liter polycarbonate bottles were used for later water collections. In the lab, the water was filtered through a GFF filter within 3 hours of collection, and preserved immediately for later ...

It is generally accepted that the toxicity of ammonia to aquatic life is dominated by free ammonia (NH3), with the ammonium ion (NH4+) being relatively non toxic. Algorithms for calculating un-ionised ammonia are readily available for freshwater systems. However they have not been sufficiently accurate in saline systems where the fraction of the total ammonia present in the unionised form is dependent on pH, temperature and salinity. Recently Plymouth Marine Laboratory have produced a new algorithm for the N.R.A., specifically to improve our understanding of the behaviour of ammonia in estuaries and coastal waters ...
