Martínez Arroyo, A., Manzanilla Naim, S., & Zavala Hidalgo, J. (2011). Vulnerability to climate change of marine and coastal fisheries in México. Atmósfera, 24(1), 103-123. Central America / Caribbean: Mexico Changes in precipitation impact sedimentation patterns thus influencing coastal erosion and the formation of barrier islands. The transportation of nutrients, sediments, organic matter, and pollutants increase under intense precipitation and flooding events. Implementing, coordinating, and/or strengthening permanent monitoring networks of oceanographic, environmental and biological variables is needed to allow the measurement of deviations to the general patterns in coastal and marine environments.
