Contents Notes
Jiaozhou Bay -- Muddy coast off Jiangsu, China : physical, ecological, and anthropogenic processes -- Changjiang estuary -- Changes in the hydrodynamics of Hangzhou Bay due to land reclamation in the past 60 years -- Marine environmental stress and Blue Bay remediation in Xiamen -- Coastal dynamics and sediment resuspension in Laizhou Bay -- Remarks. Sediment Dynamics of Chinese Muddy Coasts and Estuaries explores 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. It 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 modeling analysis. It 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"--Page 4 of cover.
