How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Variations in the flow regime lead to changes in the spatial and temporal distributions of nutrients entering the estuary area from the river, which causes corresponding changes in the trophic structure of the estuarine food web and ultimately affects the entire ecosystem. Therefore, studying the responses of estuarine food webs to changes in upstr...
The water and sediment fluxes into the estuary from upstream highly influence the estuary ecosystem. The lack of method to evaluate the impact of daily water and sediment fluxes to ecosystem has limited the ecological management of estuary. Therefore, it is important to find a quantitative method for the response of estuarine ecosystem to daily wat...
Introduction Sediment and nutrients flow into estuary with runoff, and then influence the estuary ecosystem. Much work has been done for investigating the response of water quality and species group (eg. phytoplankton or zooplankton) to the runoff from upstream, while few research has been taken to evaluate the response of the whole ecosystem. Met...
Discharge containing large amount of sediment will cause a series of ecological effects on downstream river systems. To solve the siltation problem of Yellow River and Xiaolangdi reservoirs, water and sediment regulation has been carried out since 2000. To clarify the impact of the regulation on bacterial communities in the lower Yellow River, the...
The development of river deltas has considerable economic and ecological benefits; however, owing to sediment interception by dams, river deltas face the risk of shrinking, which is a major environmental challenge of the twenty-first century. The Yellow River contains the highest amount of sediment globally, and accretion and erosion are extremely...
Rivers are considered the most important channel for microplastics traveling to the ocean from inland. The Yellow River is one of a main microplastics source for the Bohai Sea. As hydropower station operations—especially the artificial flood pulse—could significantly affect the transportation processes of microplastics, it is necessary to investiga...
