CP24D:
Processes and Management of Altered Estuaries and Deltas in the Era of Anthropocene II Posters

Session ID#: 84743

Session Description:
Estuaries and deltas have been heavily altered over the last century by various human activities, including sedimentation from soil erosion; overgrazing and other agricultural practices; drainage and filling of wetlands; eutrophication due to excessive nutrients; and diking or damming for flood control or water diversion. These human alterations to our environment necessitates defining of an Anthropocene deposit for estuaries and deltas. Efforts have been made in recent decades to understand the nature of altered estuaries and deltas 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 and deltas, as well as our experience on their restoration and adaptive management practices.
