EP004:
Biological-physical processes in nearshore and shallow-coastal environments


Session ID#: 28239

Session Description:
In nearshore and shallow coastal systems, ecological processes are forced by hydrodynamics, and understanding this biophysical coupling is challenging.  Ecosystem dynamics reflect multiple biological and physical processes spanning many scales of variability. These processes can be very influential in individual, population, community and ecosystem dynamics. For example, cross-shelf transport can determine the exchange of propagules, nutrients, pollutants and water properties between shallow- and deeper-water environments. Identification of the pertinent ecological and hydrodynamic processes, and appraisal of their importance, requires demanding field observations. More and more, ecologists use numerical simulation models to describe hydrodynamic fields and force ecological processes. However, model accuracy depends on empirical estimates of key rates and behaviors, and obtaining these estimates is also difficult, and frequently, numerical simulation models are not tested. This session invites presentations on field or laboratory observations that improve our understanding of fundamental biological-physical processes in shallow coastal systems.
