Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: Sediment Dynamics of Chinese Muddy Coasts and Estuaries: Physics, Biology and Their Interactions provides a forum for the latest research addressing the physics, sedimentary processes, biology, chemistry and ecological processes associated with these rapidly changing estuarine and coastal environments. The book explores the challenges and opportunities for future research in China’s estuaries and coastal waters around the world, and uses China as a case study to provide answers to the causes of, and possible solutions to, these problems, presenting methodologies on working with observation and modelling analysis. China’s coastal zone is facing many urgent issues in the environmental degradation and sustainable use of its marine resources. This book reviews and synthesizes papers from international research communities, including those from China, to exemplify and document their scientific approaches to manage and recover coastal ecological functions. Presents spatio-temporal processes and multivariate dynamic modelling Includes physical and biological feedback, along with marine ecosystem observation and modeling Features multidisciplinary methodological approaches Includes important information on the effects of climate change to the coasts and estuaries of China
