    Biweekly to monthly measurements of a large number of physical, chemical, and biological parameters and visual observations (by scuba divers and underwater video cameras) were performed at 80 stations in the northern Adriatic in the framework of an. the known characteristics of the North Adriatic benthic ecosystem. In particular, the seasonal variability of the benthic oxygen concentration (see figure 5) shows clearly the strong impact of the water column stratification (winter to summer) on the temporal dynamics of such state variable.

As a shallow (average depth: 35 m), semi-enclosed sea lying on continental crust, it is an ideal model for past epeiric (epicontinental) seas. In his book “The Northern Adriatic Ecosystem: Deep Time in a Shallow Sea” Frank McKinney brought an additional analogy.

The northern Adriatic is a natural laboratory in which to test hypotheses concerning the shift from the Paleozoic prevalence of stationary suspension-feeders living on the surface of the sediment and feeding from the overlying waters to, more recently, bottom-dwelling animals living dominantly in or actively seeking temporary refuge within the Cited by: The northern Adriatic Sea is transient, most recently flooded betw to 6, years ago following the last glacial maximum, and it will drain again with the onset of the next glacial period.

Despite its youth, uniformly shallow depth, and flat sediment floor, it hosts a broad range of bottom-dwelling sea life ecologically resembling communities that have existed in the shallow sea.

In an age when global change is the. A quantitative model of the trophic network of Northern Adriatic Sea marine ecosystem during the s has been constructed, with the goal of analysing its trophic structure, identifying the key trophic groups and assessing the anthropogenic impacts on the ecosystem.

The food-web model representing the exploited continental shelf of the North-Central Adriatic ecosystem during the mid-late s was developed for the characterisation of trophic structure and analysis of fisheries impact on the ecosystem (Coll et al., ; Fig.

This model represented an area with a mean depth of 75 m. The NAD and the ISJ, are semi-enclosed temperate seas in the northern hemisphere (), having comparable surface area, average depths, volumes, river inflows, annual seawater temperature ranges, and human populations in the coastal zones ().The NAD (12°12′–13°48′E and 44°00′–45°47′N) is the shallowest and the northern-most area of the Adriatic and Mediterranean Seas with an.

mass development of diatoms in July A highly variable ecosystem, like the northern Adriatic, sustains high species diversity. It presented a major issue in the Black Sea, endangering the local fisheries as it fed on fish roe and zooplankton, seriously disrupting the ecosystem.

Guglielmo, M. Campolmi Pages   Warming water and changes in terms of primary production are expected to directly influence nektonic assemblage in the Northern Adriatic Sea, driving a decrease of cold thermal affinity species and an increase of thermophilic non-indigenous ones, with possible ecological effects at the ecosystem level.

Simulations showed that the most impacted. His research interests include ecosystem modeling, coastal eutrophication, hypoxia, and potential impacts of climate change on coastal ecosystems. He has studied extensively low oxygen zones in the northern Adriatic Sea and northern Gulf of Mexico and has employed various types of numerical simulation models to describe controls of.

A biomass-based ecological model is presented here for the Adriatic Sea. The hydrodynamical part is composed of the Princeton Ocean Model, while the European Regional Seas Ecosystem Model describes the biogeochemical processes. An idealized Adriatic basin geometry has been used, with perpetual year seasonal cycle forcing the hydrodynamics and river-borne nutrient input forcing.

The present paper evaluates the paleontological implications of the above authors' work, which is compiled in an outstanding book on the northern Adriatic ecosystem (McKinney, ; see Zuschin.Adriatic sea pen distribution and habitat suitability models.

The Adriatic Sea is a semi-enclosed basin approximately km long and km wide located between Italy and the Balkan Peninsula, with a wide continental platform. Mean depths range from 35 m in the northern basin, to – m .
