Sediment Dynamics of Chinese Muddy Coasts and Estuaries

Sediment Dynamics of Chinese Muddy Coasts and Estuaries: Physics, Biology and Their Interactions provides a forum for the latest research addressing the physics, sedimentary processes, biology, chemistry and ecological processes associated with these rapidly changing estuarine and coastal environments. The book explores the challenges and opportunities for future research in China’s estuaries and coastal waters around the world, and uses China as a case study to provide answers to the causes of, and possible solutions to, these problems, presenting methodologies on working with observation and modelling analysis. China’s coastal zone is facing many urgent issues in the environmental degradation and sustainable use of its marine resources. This book reviews and synthesizes papers from international research communities, including those from China, to exemplify and document their scientific approaches to manage and recover coastal ecological functions. Presents spatio-temporal processes and multivariate dynamic modelling Includes physical and biological feedback, along with marine ecosystem observation and modeling Features multidisciplinary methodological approaches Includes important information on the effects of climate change to the coasts and estuaries of China

The SCOR (Scientific Committee on Ocean Research of ICSU) Working Group 106 was tasked with reviewing the geomorphic, sedimentary and oceanographic dynamics of muddy costs, assessing the impact of sea level rise on muddy coasts, especially in estuaries, and to recommend future research pathways relating to muddy coasts. This book addresses these questions and includes chapters on the research issues of muddy coasts, the definition of muddy coasts, sea level rise effects on muddy coasts, fundamental dynamic processes effecting muddy coast

The background for the Workshop on Cohesive Sediment Dynamics - . !!!!!. Special Reference to Physical Processes in Estuaries is briefly outlined in Chapter I. Here I wish to acknowledge those whose support I consider to be pivotal to this under taking. My deepest appreciation goes to Cynthia Vey, whose organizational skills and dedicated effort made the completion of this volume possible. Thanks are also due to Gail Terry for workshop organization, Jean Branson for word processing and Lillean Pieter for helping

Muddy coasts are land-sea transitional environments commonly found along low-energy shorelines which either receive large annual supplies of muddy sediments, or where unconsolidated muddy deposits are being eroded by wave action. In providing 21 case studies in different parts of the world this book provides an up-to-date review of the state of the art in muddy coast research. Issues dealing with hydrodynamics and suspended matter transport, erosion, deposition, and sediment budgets on tidal flats, primary production, nutrient fluxes and mineralization in
