Benthic communities north of Svalbard are less investigated than in other Arctic shelf regions, as this area was covered by sea-ice during most of the year. Improving our knowledge on this region is timely, however, since climate change is strongly evident there, particularly with regard to the extent of sea-ice decline and its huge ecological impact on all(More)
Artificial beach nourishment as a ‘soft’ means of protection has become the preferred method to combat shoreline erosion. However, the beach infauna may be affected by such a disturbance. Up to 3 m of sand have been piled upon beaches, followed by enhanced sediment dynamics. The impact of two nourishment operations of different magnitude (159,000 and(More)
Food web components and inorganic nutrients were studied on two sandy shores of the adjacent barrier islands of Sylt and Rømø in the North Sea, differing in morphodynamics. Implications of high and low wave energy on the food web structure were assessed. The Sylt shore represents a dynamic intermediate beach type, while the Rømø shore is morphologically(More)
