Ecological Continuum from the Changjiang (Yangtze River) by Jing Zhang

By Jing Zhang

The e-book offers a cross-disciplinary and multi-scale overview of a global best river, the Changjiang (Yangtze River) and its adjoining marginal setting, the East China Sea. The stories during this quantity bridges the watersheds of the river and the marginal sea via a mixed method of hydro-dynamics, geochemistry, sedimentary methods, ecology and fishery. The reaction of surroundings to the exterior riding forces is tested through process-oriented observations, mesocosm experiments and numerical simulations together. the teachings learnt from the case stories of Changjiang and East China Sea may be necessary to people who are doing inter-disciplinary researches within the continuum from watersheds to continental margins.

Chongxi station is situated at the tip of the bifurcation of the SB and NB, where the salinity exhibits a semimonthly variation. 5. The results indicate that the tide plays an important role in determining the degree of saltwater intrusion at Chongxi station. 9d shows that the SSO in December 2009 was weaker than in January 2010 during a spring tide, because the river discharge was higher in December 2009 than in January 2010. From November to early December in 2009, the river discharge was more than 13 × 103 m3/s, which was greater than for the period from late December in 2009 to early January in 2010, when it was 12 × 103 m3/s.

The instrument was fixed at a depth of about 1 m below the water surface, and the sampling rate was 2 min. The surface salinity was recorded between November 2009 and February 2010. During this period, the discharge of the Changjiang (Fig. 9a) was recorded at Datong station (Fig. 8); the water level (Fig. 9b) was recorded at Qinglonggang station (S10 in Fig. 8); and the wind speed and direction (Fig. 9c) were measured at the weather station in the eastern tidal flat of Chongming Island (“W” in Fig.
