Abstract: Coastal and shelf systems are under increasing pressure from human activities. Many coastal systems currently suffer from excessive algae growth following increased nutrient input from land, a process called eutrophication. The algae eventually sink to the seafloor, where they are degraded, which consumes oxygen (O2). In severe cases, O2 can become depleted entirely, resulting in mass mortality of animals and substantial changes in the system’s chemical conditions. When the external nutrient inp... more
