About this book

Climate change is having an increasing impact on coastal, estuarine, and marine environments worldwide. This book provides state-of-the-art coverage of climate change effects on estuarine ecosystems from local, regional, and global perspectives. With editors among the most noted international scholars in coastal ecology and estuarine science and contributors who are world-class in their fields, the chapters in this volume consist of comprehensive studies in coastal, estuarine and marine sciences, climate change, and coastal management and provide an extensive international collection of data in tabular, illustrated, and narrative formats useful for coastal scientists, planners, and managers.

Comprised of three sections: (1) physical-chemical aspects; (2) biological aspects; and (3) management aspects, the book not only examines climatic and non-climatic drivers of change affecting coastal, estuarine, and marine environments but also their interactions and effects on populations of organisms, communities, habitats, and ecosystem structure and function.

Pulling together today's most salient issues and key literature advances for those concerned with coastal management, it allows the reader to see across direct and indirect interactions among disciplinary and ecosystem boundaries.

Climate Change and Estuaries meets the research needs of climate scientists, estuarine and marine biologists, marine chemists, marine geologists, hydrologists, and coastal engineers, while students, professors, administrators, and other professionals will also find it an exhaustive reference.

Dr Michael J. Kennish is a professor emeritus in the Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences, School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey. His career in coastal, estuarine, and marine sciences spans nearly 50 years and has included extensive multidisciplinary research on coastal, estuarine, and marine ecosystems. He has also taught coastal and marine science classes at Rutgers University for many years. In addition, he has been active for decades in the outreach of science to coastal communities and K-12 schools. As a member of the Climate Institute at Rutgers University, Dr Kennish has been involved in the study of long-term climate change impacts on the New Jersey coast and elsewhere. He was an expert reviewer of the Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published in 2021 (WGI) and 2022 (WGII and WGIII). Dr Kennish is the author or editor of 16 scholarly books on various topics in coastal, estuarine, and marine sciences, the author or editor of more than 200 research articles in science journals and other publications, and the editor of 9 peer-reviewed compendium science journal special issues.

Dr Hans W. Paerl is the Kenan Professor of Marine and Environmental Sciences at the University of North Carolina's Institute of Marine Sciences. He holds a joint appointment with the Departments of Earth, Marine and Environmental Sciences and Environmental Sciences and Engineering. His collaborative research addresses microbially-mediated nutrient cycling and primary production dynamics, environmental controls and management of harmful algal (specifically cyanobacterial) blooms. Dr Paerl's research spans freshwater lakes, reservoirs (including ones used as drinking water supplies), estuarine and coastal marine waters in the US and globally (see: He has published over 350 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on these subjects. His work has been supported by the NSF, EPA, NIH, NOAA/NC Sea Grant, USDA, The NC Water Resources Research Institute, the UNC Collaboratory, the California Bay Delta Science Program, various State environmental agencies and private foundations, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Ministry of Science and Technology and the Netherlands Academy of Sciences. He also manages several estuarine water quality monitoring and assessment programs, including the Neuse River Estuary (NC) Modeling and Monitoring Program, ModMon and the Ferry-based Water Quality Monitoring Program for the Pamlico Sound System, FerryMon. Dr Paerl has supervised over 70 graduate students, and 12 post-docs, and advises undergraduate students at UNC-CH as well as other institutions. He received the 2003 G. Evelyn Hutchinson Award from the Association of the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and the 2011 Odum Award from the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation (CERF) for addressing the causes, consequences and controls of eutrophication and harmful algal blooms in aquatic ecosystems. In 2015, he was named a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), and in 2022 he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the US Harmful Algal Bloom Committee.

Dr Joseph (Joey) Crosswell is a senior research scientist at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO). Dr. Crosswell's core research examines connectivity of coastal systems, particularly carbon and nutrient cycling between sediment, ocean, and atmosphere. He is particularly interested in exploring diverse and remote coastal systems, ranging from mangroves to mesoscale eddies and from arid tropical estuaries in northern Australia to fjords in southern Chile. Dr Crosswell has served as Chief Scientist on 22 research voyages at CSIRO, leading cruises to more than 70 estuaries and coral reefs in the Great Barrier Reef ecosystem as well as voyages to other remote regions of Australia, Patagonia, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia. He has supervised seven graduate students, two postdocs and several undergraduate students at institutions spanning six countries.
