  1. 1. Evaluation of suitable nursery areas for penaeid shrimps in shallow water systems in southern Mozambique

    Author : Daniela de Abreu; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tropics; Southeast Africa; Shallow water; Estuaries; Nursery ground value; Decapods; Penaeidae; Carbon and nitrogen isotopes; Diet; Acetyl cholinesterase; Butyryl cholinesterase; Metals;

    Abstract : Tropical shallow water habitats such as estuaries, mangrove forests and seagrass beds are important nursery areas for juveniles of many commercially important species including penaeid shrimp. Penaeids are one of the most important fishery resources worldwide, and in Mozambique they are the basis of a profitable commercial fishery, landing hundreds of tons per year. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exchange flows in estuaries and archipelagos

    Author : Petter Stenström; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Different aspects of the exchange of water and tracersbetween adjacent coastal basins, and between the coast and thesea, are addressed. Deviations from the inviscid hydraulicprediction of flow rates and interface heights in maximaltwo-layer exchange flows due to viscous effects are quantifiedby means of non-hydrostatic, three-dimensional numericalmodeling.

  3. 3. Origin of Iron Isotope Signatures in Boreal Estuaries

    Author : Sarah Conrad; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Applied Geology; Tillämpad geologi;

    Abstract : The geochemistry of iron (Fe) during freshwater transport and estuarine mixing has been investigated. Espescially the changes in the Fe-isotope signature have been studied. The fate of Fe-isotopes during estuarine mixing has been poorly studied. READ MORE

  5. 5. Some Concepts of Estuarine Modeling

    Author : Bror Jönsson; Peter Lundberg; Kristofer Döös; Björn Kjärfve; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Oceanography Modeling Estuaries; Meteorology; Meteorologi;

    Abstract : If an estuarine system is to be investigated using an oceanographic modeling approach, a decision must be made whether to use a simple and robust framework based on e.g. mass-balance considerations, or if a more advanced process-resolving three-dimensional (3-D) numerical model are necessary.
