    Recognizing the critical influences that human activities have on the ecological condition of the interconnected aquatic ecosystems of coastal areas—wetlands, streams, rivers, and estuaries—the Atlantic Slope Consortium (ASC) team spent 5 years developing a suite of ecological and socioeconomic indicators for assessing and managing the. Monitoring Ecological Condition in the Western United States. The use of these indicators and designs were successfully demonstrated in the landscapes, streams, and estuaries of the mid-Atlantic states as part of the Mid-Atlantic Integrated Assessment (MAlA). *immediately available upon purchase as print book shipments may be delayed.

      The lands and waters of the Mid-Atlantic Region (MAR) have changed significantly since before the 16 th century when the Susquehannock lived in the area.

The Atlantic Estuarine Research Society (AERS) brings together students, scientists, managers, and educators from the states of DE, MD, NC, NJ, PA, and VA and Washington, DC to discuss estuarine and coastal environmental issues and policies. It is our intent to a foster broader interest in our environment by increasing public awareness of.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Condition of the mid-Atlantic estuaries. Washington, DC: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Research and Development, []. This report focuses on the current condition of the Mid-Atlantic estuaries (circa early to mid s) and, where information is available, how the estuaries have changed over the years and why.

The pervasive issues across the Mid-Atlantic Region include the oyster harvest and disease in shellfish. The coastal bays appear to be the healthiest estuaries in the Mid-Atlantic but are threatened by increasing urban development.

An estuary is a partially enclosed coastal body of brackish water with one or more rivers or streams flowing into it, and with a free connection to the open sea. Estuaries form a transition zone between river environments and maritime environments known as ies are subject both to marine influences such as tides, waves, and the influx of saline water and to riverine influences.
