Water Scarcity in the Mediterranean: Perspectives Under Global Change

Water shortage impacts hydrologic assets, structures connectivity, biodiversity, water caliber, and river environment functioning. It has direct affects on financial sectors that use and rely on water, corresponding to agriculture, tourism, undefined, strength and shipping. The Mediterranean Basin is without doubt one of the areas on the planet so much at risk of weather alterations, in addition to essentially the most impacted via human water call for.

Although the gradient of nitrate across the sediment–water interface in mangrove forests indicates a diffusive release into the overlying water, measured fluxes are generally directed into the sediment (Fig. 9). , 1998). , 2001; Holmer & Olsen, 2002). These processes serve as efficient mechanisms for nutrient conservation. The availability of sediment nutrients to microbes and plants is complicated by geochemical processes, such as the involvement of some nutrients in MANGROVES OF SOUTHEAST ASIA 19 adsorption reactions to clay minerals.
