About this book

This book represents an outgrowth of an interdisciplinary session held at the Seventh International Estuarine Research Federation Conference held at Virginia Beach, Virginia, October 1983. At that meeting, the participants agreed to contribute to and develop a monograph entitled Tidal Mixing and Plankton Dynamics by inviting an expanded group of authors to contribute chapters on this theme. The emphasis would be to review and summarize the considerable body of knowledge that has accumulated over the last decade or so on the fundamental role tidal mixing plays in energetic shallow seas and estuaries in stimulating and controlling biological production.

The editors have attempted to provide a mix of contributions, composed of reviews of the state-of-the-art, reports on current research activities, summaries of the design and testing of a new generation of innovative instruments for biological and chemical sampling and sorting, and some imaginative ideas for future experiments on stimulated mixing in continental shelf seas.
