Abstract Wismar Bay is a shallow coastal embayment in the Western Baltic Sea which is polluted by various industries. Macrobenthos data collected between 1986–91 are examined for qualitative and quantitative changes attributable to oxygen depletion and the subsequent time needed for recovery. Regular oceanographic surveys since 1976 indicate one episode of oxygen deficiency, caused by deep-water intrusion into the study area. However, principal component analyses show that the benthic community… 
A Multi-Tracer Study of Fresh Water Sources for a Temperate Urbanized Coastal Bay (Southern Baltic Sea)
Terrestrial surface waters and submarine ground water discharge (SGD) act as a source of dissolved substances for coastal systems. Solute fluxes of SGD depend on the ground water composition and the
Spatio-temporal variation of the structural organization of demersal communities in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.
Structural patterns of a sublittoral community were analyzed through a two-year series of samples in the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico, and there is a striking difference in trophic web structure between the dry season and rainy season.
A Global Perspective On The Effects Of Eutrophication And Hypoxia On Aquatic Biota And Water Quality
Development associated with human populations has led to the globalization of many environmental problems. In marine systems, the most serious of these problems are directly related to the process of
Spreading Dead Zones and Consequences for Marine Ecosystems
Dead zones in the coastal oceans have spread exponentially since the 1960s and have serious consequences for ecosystem functioning, exacerbated by the increase in primary production and consequent worldwide coastal eutrophication fueled by riverine runoff of fertilizers and the burning of fossil fuels.
