  • Provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art coverage of estuarine science
  • Details current knowledge and recent advances on estuaries
  • Encompasses a broad spectrum of natural phenomena in estuarine systems
  • A valuable reference on estuarine biology, chemistry, geology, and physics
  • The most comprehensive, multidisciplinary source of information on estuaries

The Encyclopedia of Estuaries, part of Springer's Encyclopedia of Earth Sciences Series, provides a single, state-of-the-art, comprehensive reference volume on estuaries for research scientists, educators, students, and others. Consisting of hundreds of subject entries in an easy-to-use format, this volume covers the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of estuaries. Authors from around the world have contributed to the encyclopedia on such diverse subjects as biotic communities, essential habitats, food webs, fisheries, hydrology, pollution, conservation, and many more. The Encyclopedia of Estuaries will meet the needs of professionals worldwide by supplying detailed information from world-class estuarine and marine scientists as well as experts from other fields of study.

The Editor:
Michael J. Kennish is a world-class estuarine scientist and a research professor in the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey (USA). In addition to his research on estuaries, Dr. Kennish has conducted biological and geological research on coastal ocean and deep-sea environments. Much of his research has involved the development and application of innovative methods to assess anthropogenic impacts and to determine the condition and health of coastal ecosystems. Dr. Kennish is the author or editor of 13 scholarly books in marine science, and he is the author or co-author of more than 170 articles in science journals and books.
