Estuarine Perspectives presents most of the invited papers presented at the Fifth Biennial International Research Conference on Estuarine Research. The book includes information on one tropical and two Arctic estuaries; contemporary techniques as applied to estuarine research; and some hypotheses of estuarine ecology. The text also describes value and management of wetlands as well as the chemical cycles and fluxes. The primary production and photosynthesis; the physical and biological factors of estuarine sediment; and the ecosystem dynamics are also encompassed.
