Abstract:
The objectives of this project are to study the biological
processes that influence the fate of organic matter in estuaries by:
a) comparison of the ecological structure of major European tidal estuaries. MAST funding will be used for co ordinating simultaneous field surveys in different
estuaries;
b) specific co-ordinated studies on the rates of major processes on short and medium time scales in the field in
Schelde and Gironde and in laboratory experiments;
c) building mathematical ecosystem models describing the major biological processes in the estuaries studied, which are
based on appropriate hydrodynamical models, and incorporate
the field data and results from process studies specified
in (a) and (b).
