Coastal Zone Topics: Process, Ecology & Management 3. The estuaries of Central Scotland 1997


The papers in this volume are based on a local meeting of the Estuarine and Coastal Sciences Association, held at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, UK, on 6 to 8 April 1995. The topic of the meeting was the current state of the estuaries of Central Scotland.

The papers presented are divided into topics. After consideration of water movements and quality, attention is focused on contaminants which have been measured, especially heavy metals. Within the biological group of papers, there is a range from the primary producers, through the primary consumers (mainly benthic), and on to consider the secondary consumers (including shrimps, fish and birds). Finally, attention is given to the developing role of conservation and environmental management.

Please note this volume has been produced from a scan of an original document, and is therefore a large file size. There may also be fluctuations in quality.

Due to the file size of the volume, it has been split into two parts.

Part 1 includes the Preface and acknowledgements; and papers on the following topics:

  • Hydrography.
  • Water Quality.
  • Contamination.

Part 2 includes papers on:

  • Biological Studies.
  • Conservation and Management.
