What happens when fresh & salt water meet?

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN FRESH & SALT WATER MEET? MAYBE A FRESH WATER CROCODILE WANTS A SALTY MEAL IN THE SEA!

MAYBE A FRESH WATER CROCODILE WANTS A SALTY MEAL IN THE SEA! MAYBE THE CROC WANTS A SHARK DINNER!

MAYBE THE SHARK WANTS A CROC DINNER! DOUBLE THE ANIMAL LIFE!

DOUBLE THE PLANT LIFE!!!!! DOUBLE THE PLANT LIFE!!!!! because we have fresh AND salt water ecosystems!

BIRDS LOVE THIS PLACE BECAUSE THERES ALWAYS SOMETHING TO EAT. THEY HAVE PLENTY OF NESTING SITES TOO!

FRESH RIVERS RUN INTO SALTY OCEAN IN ESTUARIES ESTUARIES HAVE 2X LIFE BECAUSE 2 ECOSYSTEMS ARE COLLIDING!

DOUBLE THE NUTRIENTS MEANING 2X THE BREEDING & FEEDING! Man, theres GOT to be something I

can eat in there! DOES SALTINESS (SALINITY) INCREASE OR DECREASE AS YOU HEAD TOWARDS THE OCEAN?

SALINITY INCREASES AS FRESH RIVER WATER RUNS-OFF TO THE SALTY OCEAN, SALINITY DECREASES WHEN OCEAN WATER GOES UP THE FRESH RIVER

brackish SALTY/FRESH MIX = BRACKISH LOOK HOW LUSH & FERTILE AN ESTUARY LOOKS

s i Why rtant? o imp

OH, YEAH. THATS A GOOD REASON. HURRICANES: A GOOD REASON. CHECK FOR UNDERSTANDING

WHY WOULD YOU CONSIDER ESTUARIES TO BE PLACES WITH HIGH RISK & HIGH REWARD?

It has TWICE the NUTRIENTS (both fresh & salt water nutrients) But you have TWICE as MANY

COMPETITORS for this RICH environment. IF WE GET A WHOLE BUNCH OF RUNOFF FROM RAIN IN CENTRAL CAROLINA, WOULD YOU EXPECT MORE OR LESS SALINITY IN OUR COASTAL ESTUARIES?

AS RUN-OFF HEADS TOWARDS THE OCEAN, MORE FRESH WATER WOULD FLOW THROUGH THE ESTUARIES.

IF A HURRICANES STORM SURGE COLLIDES WITH OUR COAST, WOULD YOU EXPECT AN ESTUARY TO INCREASE OR DECREASE SALINITY?

Estuaries would increase in salinity as ocean water is pushed up into the estuaries.
