Brown tide refers to several phytoplankton species that color the water brown at high concentrations and is primarily found in the eastern embayments
of Long Island, including the Great South Bay, Moriches Bay, Shinnecock Bay, and the Peconic Bays system.
Around Kodiak Island, juvenile Tanner crabs grow more rapidly in protected embayments
with fine sediments, compared with other more exposed nearshore locations (Ryer et al.
Crabs in protected embayments
were larger in August than crabs at open coastal sites.
Since the initial discovery of Sargassum horneri and Undaria pinnatifida in the Port of Los Angeles and Long Beach complex, their range and abundance has dramatically increased throughout the Southern California Bight to include many Channel Islands and coastal embayments
are present in shallow marginal areas of embayments
The slight embayments
mapped at the outer ends of the drains that cross the marsh also generally indicate an erosional state.
The no discharge zone encompasses approximately 3,675 square miles and 326 shoreline miles, including the navigable portions of the Lower Genesee, Oswego, Black Rivers and numerous other tributaries and harbors, embayments
of the Lake including Irondequoit Bay, Sodus Bay, North/South Ponds, Henderson Bay, Black River Bay and Chautmont Bay, and an abundance of formally designated habitats and waterways of local, state, and national significance.
Mazes of mangrove-edged connected creeks and embayments
create extensive nurseries for bonefish and other species.
For well-equilibrated open waters in the Eastern Australian Current the northeast coast value is likely to approximate local open ocean values, but studies elsewhere suggest that the waters within embayments
like Moreton Bay itself could reflect local input and hydrological conditions (e.
In Alaska, brant are increasing along the Alaska Peninsula at Izembek Lagoon and adjacent embayments
, where virtually the entire eastern Pacific Flyway population stages in fall prior to transoceanic migration to wintering areas (Reed et al.
56 papers from the Tenth International Conference on Estuarine and Coastal Modeling are presented in this volume, providing engineers in the field with updates on state-of-the-art application and models for bays, sounds, estuaries, embayments
, bights, lagoons and coastal seas.
Formed largely of freshwater glacial ice, the Larsen Ice Shelf is a series of three shelves occupying distinct embayments
along the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula and are named A, 13 and C according to their location.
