Defining and detecting undesirable disturbance in the context of marine eutrophication.
Assessing the impact of nutrient enrichment in estuaries: susceptibility to eutrophication.
Nitrogen fluxes through the lower estuary of the river Great Ouse, England: the role of the bottom sediments
The fate of nitrogen (N) in the bottom sediments of the upper Great Ouse estuary, England, was examined over the course of a year. The sedirnents were consistent sinks for NO3from the overlying river…
Seasonal organic mineralisation and denitrification in intertidal sediments and their relationship to the abundance of Enteromorpha sp. and Ulva sp.
Sedimentary organic matter mineralisation, nitrogen loss, and nutrient exchange were measured seasonally in areas of both high and low Enteromorpha sp.
Framework for understanding marine ecosystem health
The need for institutional support for long time-series to underpin this approach, and for research to establish state space co-ordinates for systems in good health, is identified.

A programme of surveys of the Great Ouse estuary (England) was conducted to investigate the cycling of nutrients during mixing and to quantify nutrient budgets for the estuary. The Great Ouse estuary…
Seasonal benthic organic matter mineralisation measured by oxygen uptake and denitrification along a transect of the inner and outer River Thames estuary, UK
Seasonal measurements of organic matter mineralisation by oxygen uptake and denitrification were carried out from July 1996 to March 1998 along a -200 km transect of the River Thames estuary, UK, finding clear seasonality and highest rates of oxygen uptake at the muddy sites, but lower rates and non-temperature-dependent oxygen uptake in the sandier sites.
