Sea-bed Mixing and Particle Residence Times in Biologically and Physically Dominated Estuarine Systems: a Comparison of Lower Chesapeake Bay and the York River Subestuary
Biologically dominated lower Chesapeake Bay and the physically dominated York River subestuary are contrasted in terms of the dynamics of sediment mixing, strata formation and sea-bed particleExpand
Sediment export from the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea: evidence for a divergent sediment plume
Abstract The Sepik River, with an estimated annual sediment load of ∼85×106 t yr−1, empties directly into a submarine canyon that transverses a narrow continental shelf (
Dramatic hydrodynamic and sedimentary responses in Galveston Bay and adjacent inner shelf to Hurricane Harvey.
Hurricane Harvey, one of the worst hurricanes that hit the United States in recent history, poured record-breaking rainfall across the Houston metropolitan area. Based on a comprehensive set of dataExpand
The Effects of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita on the Seabed of the Louisiana Shelf
The legacy of hurricanes Katrina and Rita on land has been one of human devastation and long-term damage to the infrastructure of communities along the northern Gulf of Mexico. In addition, theseExpand
The importance of sea-level and climate change, including changing wind energy, on the evolution of a coastal estuary: Copano Bay, Texas
Abstract 123 km of high-resolution 2-D seismic lines and 6 sediment cores up to 16 m in length were collected from Copano Bay, Texas. These data were used to examine the role of climate and sea-levelExpand
The impact of shrimp trawling and associated sediment resuspension in mud dominated, shallow estuaries
Abstract To address the relative importance of shrimp trawling on seabed resuspension and bottom characteristics in shallow estuaries, a series of disturbance and monitoring experiments wereExpand
Ephemeral deposition, seabed mixing and fine-scale strata formation in the York River estuary, Chesapeake Bay
Abstract A process-oriented sedimentary facies model is developed for the York River estuary, a sub-estuary of the lower Chesapeake Bay. This facies model was based on 210Pb and grain-size profiles,Expand
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Distribution within Lower Hudson River Estuarine Sediments: Physical Mixing vs Sediment Geochemistry
Abstract Sediments and porewaters from two cores, one from the East River, New York and one from Newark Bay, New Jersey, were sampled for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and other geochemicalExpand
Shifts in depositional environments as a natural response to anthropogenic alterations: Nakdong Estuary, South Korea
Abstract The Nakdong Estuary, located within the coastal zone of Busan, South Korea, has been subjected to a series of engineered alterations typical of many eastern Asian estuaries. The constructionExpand
