In summary, waves and tides can have a profound influence on the morphology and evolution of a coast. In areas with large waves and thus high wave energy, sediments can be extensively reworked by the erosive energy of the waves and widely distributed by the process of longshore transport.

Coastal ecosystems play significant ecological and economic roles but are threatened and facing decline.

Microbes drive various biogeochemical processes in coastal ecosystems. Tidal Cited by: Tidal flats provide ecosystem services to billions of people worldwide, yet their changing status is largely unknown. In the Yellow Sea region of East Asia, tidal flats are the principal coastal. substrates for salt marshes, tidal ats and mangroves (Olsen et al., undated).

Anthropogenic activities can either increase or decrease the natural sediment loads in intertidal coastal ecosystems. Internal waves are widespread features of global oceans that play critical roles in mixing and thermohaline circulation.

Similarly to surface waves, internal waves can travel long distances, ultimately breaking along continental margins. These breaking waves can transport deep ocean water and associated constituents (nutrients, larvae, and acidic low-oxygen waters) onto the shelf and locally Cited by: The installation and operation of individual or multiple tidal stream devices, as with other forms of wet renewable energy systems, directly affect benthic habitats by altering water flows, wave structures, or substrate composition and sediment dynamics (e.g., Neill et al., ).
