Day, J. W., Christian, R. R., Boesch, D. M., Yáñez-Arancibia, A., Morris, J., Twilley, R. R., Naylor, L., Schaffner, L. (2008). Consequences of climate change on the ecogeomorphology of coastal wetlands. Estuaries and Coasts, 31(3), 477-491. Global Changes in fresh water intrusion will bring about respective decreases and increases in sediment and nutrient input to estuaries, which will affect organisms that depend on this supply. On the other hand, freshwater input into coastal systems reduces the level of a number of stressors (e.g., freshwater reduces salinity, mineral sediments directly stimulate accretion, iron precipitates sulfides, and nutrients stimulate belowground productivity and thus organic soil formation. Sediment, freshwater, and nutrient supplies need to be managed at the regional level.
