ME002:
Emerging contaminants in coastal and marine ecosystems


Session ID#: 27736

Session Description:
This session would showcase the increase in emerging and legacy contaminants and their effects on coastal and estuarine species, communities, and ecosystems, given the increase in consumer use of chemical compounds (e.g., pharmaceuticals, personal care products, plastics). Field and laboratory studies have elucidated the environmental concentrations of contaminants and their fate and transport to ecosystems located downstream from sources of human activity. Laboratory and mesocosm experiments are shedding light on biological and ecological effects of these contaminants individually and in combination with other environmental stressors in marine ecosystems. While the body of literature is substantial for freshwater ecosystems, we know far less about the impacts of these compounds on coastal and estuarine species, communities, and ecosystems. Further, how these compounds interact with other environmental stressors (i.e., changing temperatures, pH) as well as community interactions (i.e., predator and prey dynamics) are even less studied and prompt attention for additional research. Climate change and sea level rise are expected to nearshore communities and ecosystems. The presence of emerging or legacy contaminants may exacerbate other environmental stressors through interactive effects. Knowledge of whether these interactive effects will be additive, subtractive, or synergistic has yet to be documented.
