In a recent study of the mesotidal Ria Formosa, a coastal lagoon in southern Portugal, water temperature in the channels ranged from 12 C in winter to 27 C in summer and salinity from 13 to 36.5, although much higher values were observed in saltpans. Conditions in the Ria Formosa were not homogeneous despite a large tidal exchange of water; the inner channels of the Ria Formosa were brackish in winter but hypersaline in summer. Water in inner areas of lagoon had significantly different… CONTINUE READING
