Estuaries: The Handbook of Environmental Chemistry, cartea 5 / 5H

Editat de Peter J. Wangersky
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 10 ian 2006
Aspects of the biogeochemistry of estuaries from a variety of environments, from the tropics to the Arctic, are discussed. In most cases the courses of these rivers have been altered by dams or diversions; the results of these changes on the nature of the estuary are also discussed, where such data is available. In the case of the Tasmanian rivers, the estuary of the Huon, a largely untouched river, is contrasted with that of the Derwent, a river heavily influenced by industry. The future state of all of these estuaries may be a sensitive indicator of shifts in global weather patterns.

Descriere

Aspects of the biogeochemistry of estuaries from a variety of environments, from the tropics to the Arctic, are discussed. In most cases the courses of these rivers have been altered by dams or diversions; the results of these changes on the nature of the estuary are also discussed, where such data is available. In the case of the Tasmanian rivers, the estuary of the Huon, a largely untouched river, is contrasted with that of the Derwent, a river heavily influenced by industry. The future state of all of these estuaries may be a sensitive indicator of shifts in global weather patterns.

Recenzii

From the reviews:
"The book gives a comprehensive overview on different aspects of the biogeochemistry of estuaries from a variety of environments, from the tropics to the Artic. … The book is well updated and extensively illustrated to show the complex geochemistry of estuaries and the human pressures that may impair their equilibrium. It is a reference book for environmental scientists, scholars, as well as policy makers, concerned by the study and management of these key ecosystems." (International Journal of Environmental and Analytical Chemistry, Vol. 86, 2006)

Caracteristici

The biogeochemistry of estuaries from a variety of environments are discussed in great detail.
Where data is available, the changes in the nature of the estuaries, caused e.g. by dams or diversions are also covered.
