×L3. Water quality and ecological interactions in lakes, estuaries and coastal seas

Ecological responses in receiving waters including lakes, estuaries and coastal seas are often strongly influenced by water quality. Deteriorating water quality in receiving waters can thus lead to many ecological issues, such as algal bloom and decline in aquatic biodiversity. There are significant efforts globally to address management of these issues and a strong modelling capability underpinned by system understanding is critical.

This session welcomes submissions that consider the water quality process, ecological response, and their interactions within these receiving water systems. We encourage modelling studies that address either components of these systems or full system modelling.

This session aims to address recent advances in modelling water quality and ecological responses in receiving waters, including:

Key topics: Receiving water quality, Aquatic ecology, Modelling, Pollution
