- ... Ecosystem changes of the coastal areas of the East China Sea (ECS) during the past 30 years have been characterized by increased productivity and increased occurrences of dinoflagellate red tides; both were commonly attributed to be caused by anthropogenic input of nutrients. However, climate-driven regime shifts were found in the Pacific, but they have not been observed in the ECS owing to the la ...

- ... Coastal hypoxia is an increasingly recognized environmental issue of global concern to both the scientific community and the general public. We assessed the relative contributions from marine and terrestrially sourced organic matter that were responsible for oxygen consumption in a well-studied seasonal coastal hypoxic zone, the East China Sea off the Changjiang Estuary. Our fieldwork was conducte ...
