  • Wetlands: Monitoring, Modelling and Management

    This volume highlights research on the construction of a vigorous and spatially-explicit model, which will describe the dynamics of wetland vegetation in relation to environmental variables, including hydrological regimes, sediment type, and nutrient availability. It features new information on ecological functions, environmental services, and ...

  • Coastal Monitoring Through Partnerships

    As the coastal human population increases in the United States, there will likely be increasing environmental and socioeconomic pressures on our coastal and estuarine environments. Monitoring the condition of all our nation's coastal and estuarine ecosystems over the long term is more than any one program can accomplish on its own. Therefore, ...

  • Morphodynamics of Texel Inlet

    Texel inlet, the largest inlet in the Dutch Wadden Sea, has undergone drastic changes in the morphology of its back-barrier basin, ebb-tidal delta and adjacent coastlines after the closure of the Zuiderzee (1926-1932). As a result large sand losses were observed along the adjacent coastlines and still until today the maintenance of this part of ...

  • Remote Sensing of Aquatic Coastal Ecosystem Processes

    The aquatic coastal zone is one of the most challenging targets for environmental remote sensing. Properties such as bottom reflectance, spectrally diverse suspended sediments and phytoplankton communities, diverse benthic communities, and transient events that affect surface reflectance (coastal blooms, runoff, etc.) all combine to produce an ...
