Ecohydrology is a multidisciplinary science that integrates disciplines such as hydrology, ecology and mathematical modeling with the aim of generating solutions for the worldwide water crisis. Estuaries, the intersection of freshwater and coastal ecosystems, exhibit complex physical and biological processes which must be understood in order to sustain and restore them when necessary.
This book, appropriate for use as a textbook and as a reference, focuses on the principal components of an estuary, including the river, the estuarine waters, the sediment, the nutrients, the wetlands, the estuarine food web, and the coastal ocean. Although each chapter contains rigorous specialist knowledge, it is presented in an accessible way that encourages collaboration between aquatic, marine and wetland biologists, ecologists, oceanographers, geologists, geomorphologists, chemists, and ecosystem modelers.
Estuarine Ecohydrology demonstrates how, based on an understanding of the processes controlling estuarine ecosystem health, one can quantify its ability to cope with human stresses. The theories, models, and real-world solutions presented will serve as a toolkit for designing a management plan for the ecologically sustainable development of an estuary.
