Abstract The performance of the suspended cohesive sediment transport model can be improved by using data assimilation; however, only one source of observations of suspended sediment concentrations (SSCs) is assimilated in the previous studies. This study investigates the simultaneous assimilation of multi-source SSC observations, including in-situ SSC observations and GOCI-retrieved SSCs, into a three-dimensional suspended cohesive sediment transport model by the adjoint method in the Bohai Sea...

Abstract The nonlinear tide-surge interaction (NTSI) can significantly affect the levels associated with storm surges that threaten coastal areas. In this work, water level observations and numerical simulations are used to investigate those interactions in the large, mighty and socio-economically important Rio de la Plata (RdP) estuary. We introduce a novel objective approach to seek evidence of nonlinear interactions in hourly water level records from six tide gauges collected along the coast....

Abstract The effects of the binary typhoon on the surface wave field in the South China Sea (SCS) were investigated using the third-generation wave model WaveWatch Ⅲ (WWⅢ). The surface wave field during the binary typhoons Sarika and Haima (2016) was reproduced with blended winds and two nested domains, and the simulation results obtained are in good agreement with the satellite altimeter data. To investigate different wave characteristics under binary and individual typhoons, a numerical experi...

Abstract For decades, bivalve shells have constituted one of the most common supports for paleoclimatic archives based on stable isotope approaches. In this work, we conducted chemical marking and recapture techniques to study the fluctuation of δ18O values of oyster shells of the species Magallana gigas reared in natural environment in Normandy (France) for two years. The results were compared to the continuous monitoring of temperature and salinity and monthly records of seawater δ18O. Isotopi...

Abstract Spatiotemporal variation of human pathogenic bacteria was observed in the surface waters of a monsoonal estuary and these bacteria were also found to be associated with the native fish of two monsoonal estuaries. The temporal variation was in accordance with any monsoonal estuary. Also, the spatial variation in physicochemical parameters and bacterial counts was very evident at any given time. For instance, one sampling location in the estuary consistently had 103 fold higher bacterial ...

Abstract Seagrasses provide essential and global ecosystem services. However, due to natural and anthropogenic disturbance, seagrass meadows around the world have declined dramatically in recent decades. Researchers and managers have been calling for increased frequency and accuracy in the mapping of seagrass distributions to benefit seagrass conservation for over a decade, and we argue that a critical advancement in the management of seagrasses could come through increased and iterative model-b...

Abstract Climate change is leading to increases in freshwater discharge to coastal environments with implications for benthic community structure and functioning. Freshwater inputs create strong environmental gradients, which potentially affect the community structure of benthic infauna. In turn, changes in functional trait composition have the potential to affect the processing of terrestrially-derived nutrients and organic matter along the freshwater to marine continuum. We investigated the ef...

Abstract In urban mangroves affected by surrounding urbanization and anthropogenic activities, the fate of mercury (Hg) in sediment-mangrove system remains unclear. In this study, four urban mangroves with different urban functional zonings in fast-developing Shenzhen of China were selected: Shajing mangrove (SJM) and Xixiang mangrove (XXM) featured with industry district, Futian mangrove (FTM) and Baguang mangrove (BGM) featured with central business district and ecological preserve, respective...

Abstract Given the importance of wave–current interaction in estuarine and coastal dynamics, it is crucial to revisit impacts of surface gravity waves on three-dimensional (3D) nearshore circulation. This work investigates wave-induced circulation in three typical coastal systems including an idealized inlet and planar and natural barred beaches, by implementing the recent 3D radiation stress (RS) theory and vortex-force (VF) formalism to an unstructured-grid Finite-Volume Community Ocean Model ...

Abstract Flocculation is an integral part for cohesive sediment transport processes as it will further influence other processes such as settling, deposition as well as erosion processes. To understand the impacts of flocculation on entrainment process of fluid mud with different salinities, a series of entrainment and sedimentation experiments were conducted. Entrainment experiments were conducted under constant hydrodynamic conditions driven by a shear ring on the top of an annular flume. Whil...
