E003:
Processes and Management of Altered Estuaries in the Era of Anthropocene


Session ID#: 28371

Session Description:
Physically and geologically dispensable and ecologically valuable estuaries have been heavily altered over the last century by various human activities, including sedimentation from soil erosion; overgrazing and other poor farming practices; drainage and filling of wetlands; eutrophication due to excessive nutrients; and diking or damming for flood control or water diversion. Efforts have been made in recent decades to understand the nature of altered estuaries and physical and biogeochemical responses to these modifications. This session will provide a venue to share our increased knowledge of the comprehensive nature of physical, geological, chemical, and biological processes of altered estuaries, as well as our experience on their restoration and adaptive management practices.
