Microbial Processes, Organic Matter and Oxygen Demand in the Water Column / Robert Jonas. Experimental Approaches for Studying Aquatic Microbial Processes. Bacterial Behavior. Research and Management Needs. Ch. 4. Benthic-Pelagic Interactions: Nutrient and Oxygen Dynamics / W. Michael Kemp and Walter A. Boynton. Deposition of Particulate Organic Matter. Benthic Metabolism and Nutrient Cycling. Sediment Nitrogen Cycling. Interactions between Phytoplankton and Benthic Macrofauna. Role of Benthic and Pelagic Processes in Oxygen Depletion. Effects of Eutrophication on Benthic-Pelagic Coupling. Research Needs and Management Implications -- Appendix: Low Dissolved Oxygen Research Projects. This book examines the processes that create and sustain anoxia (the absence of oxygen) and hypoxia (the near absence of oxygen) in bottom waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The authors of the book's four chapters discuss major findings and summarize the gradually developing consensus on the implications of these findings for resource management. William C. Boicourt focuses on the physical aspects of Chesapeake Bay in order to distinguish the role and relative importance of circulation processes in the creation of low dissolved oxygen levels. Thomas C. Malone examines the role of water column processes, including the importance and interaction of nutrients, phytoplankton and zooplankton. Robert Jonas discusses the significance of microbial populations, while W. Michael Kemp and Walter R. Boynton discuss the role and importance of benthicpelagic coupling on Chesapeake Bay dissolved oxygen.
