Coral Reefs

SS3.02: Coral Reef Estuaries
Organizer: Ernie Matson, University of Guam (

Tropical coral island estuaries (fed by surface or groundwater) provide unique field laboratories to deal with the issues of salinity, turbidity, nutrient enrichment, and extra physical phenomena besides tides. This symposium will provide opportunities to describe, in quantitative and qualitative terms, the tolerance range of corals within the estuarine environment.
