Sediment resuspension may play a major role in sediment-water exchange of nutrients, matter and energy in coastal areas where waves and currents dominate sediment transport. Biogeochemical sediment properties regulate sediment erodibility, but there is only limited knowledge of how temporal variability in environmental variables is reflected in the resuspension potential, especially for subtidal habitats. Further, the significance of resuspension on nutrient fluxes in coastal environments has re...

What limits secondary production in the estuaries of snowmelt-dominated basins? Due to substantial differences in their annual hydrographs, zooplankton dynamics in these estuaries are expected to differ from better-studied pluvial systems. We hypothesized that water residence time limited zooplankton production in the undammed, snowmelt-dominated estuary of the Fraser River, Canada. We sampled zooplankton and associated environmental variables bi-weekly to monthly in slough and channel areas of ...

Links between hydrologic modifications, flow and salinity regimes, and submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) species composition and abundance were assessed with an empirical analysis of 33 years of monitoring data collected at nine sites in Florida’s Caloosahatchee River Estuary (CRE). Freshwater inflows to the estuary (30-day means) were often outside the previously recommended envelope of 12.74 to 79.29 m3 s−1. Discharges from Lake Okeechobee through a synthetic hydrologic link were responsible ...

Understanding food pathways in estuarine communities is essential to improve our ability to cope with the increasing effects of man-made activities and climate variability on the biodiversity of coastal systems. Herein, we analyzed carbon and nitrogen isotope ratios of food web components in a large tropical bay in the southwestern Atlantic, in order to investigate spatial and temporal changes in the assimilation of basal food sources by fishes. Two hypotheses were evaluated: (i) continental-der...

The shallow, turbid water of the Delaware Bay Estuary is the second most navigated waterway in the USA behind the Mississippi River and experiences tropical and extratropical cyclones from June through April bringing high winds, storm surge, precipitation, and coastal change. Mapping coastal areas within the Delaware Bay is particularly difficult due to inherent environmental factors such as low underwater visibility (less than 1 m), rapid tidal current (greater than 1 m/s), changeable weather, ...

Understanding the implications of environmental disturbance is of growing importance as climate change and extreme weather events increasingly threaten estuaries and other coastal ecosystems. Among species at risk in estuarine habitats, sport fishes are of particular interest to conservation and management agencies, because of their ecological and economic value. Here, we evaluate the effects of Hurricane Harvey on the abundance, diet, and body condition of age-0 red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) a...

In response to current threats to salt marshes, there are increasing efforts to restore these vital coastal ecosystems and promote their resilience to global change drivers. Unfortunately, the economic cost associated with assessing the effectiveness of restoration is prohibitive and more information is needed about the trajectory and timing of restoration outcomes to improve restoration practices. Microbial communities provide essential salt marsh functions so assessing the degree to which micr...

The Hudson Bay system is undergoing climate-driven changes in sea ice and freshwater inflow and has seen an increase in winter river inflow since the 1960s due in part to flow regulation for hydropower production. Southeast Hudson Bay and adjacent James Bay are at the forefront of these changes, with more than 1-month shortening of the season of sea ice cover as defined using satellite data, increases in winter inflow from the regulated La Grande River complex, and changes in coastal ice and pol...

Assessing the biomass and productivity of fin- and shellfish supported by coastal ecosystems is important to develop plans for the conservation and restoration of these ecosystems, but such assessments are not easy to obtain. We developed a protocol that, from density data, quantifies biomass at recruitment for species where information exists to derive life history tables, and productivity where such information does not exist. Our protocol also assesses the variability (i.e., variance) for the...
