The controlling physical factors for vertical oxygen stratification in micro-tidal, partially-mixed estuaries are discussed in this paper. A theoretical deduction shows that vertical stratification of dissolved oxygen (DO) concentration can be explained by the extended Hansen and Rattray’s Central Region theory, which suggests that in addition to biological factors such as photosynthesis, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), sediment oxygen demand (SOD), vertical DO profiles are mainly controlled… CONTINUE READING
