Articles T he process of eutrophication represents the bio-geochemical response to heavy nutrient loading (Nixon 1995, Cloern 2001). Typical consequences of eutrophication include (a) elevated primary production in response to elevated nutrient delivery and (b) elevated respiration in response to the rapid production of organic matter. In cases of(More)
Measurements of the production and consumption of organic material have been a focus of aquatic science for more than 80 years. Over the last century, a variety of approaches have been developed and employed for measuring rates of gross primary production (Pg), respiration (R), and net ecosystem production (Pn = Pg − R) within aquatic ecosystems. Here, we(More)
Remote sensing has become a powerful tool to derive biophysical properties of plants. One of the most popular methods for extracting vegetation information from remote sensing data is through vegetation indices. Models to predict soil erosion like the "Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation" (RUSLE) can use vegetation indices as input to measure the effects(More)
Typology, the 'study or systematic classification of types that have characteristics or traits in common', has become a commonly used term and technique in coastal zone studies over the past two decades. At least part of this is due to adoption by the first LandeOcean Interactions in the Coastal Zone (LOICZ) project of a typological approach as a way to(More)
