Dynamics in benthic community composition and influencing factors in an upwelling-exposed coral reef on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica
Seasonal upwelling at the northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica offers the opportunity to investigate the effects of pronounced changes in key water parameters on fine-scale dynamics of local coral reef communities. This ...
A carbonate platform associated with shallow cold methane seeps in Golfo Dulce, Pacific Costa Rica
Marine methane seeps are typically observed in cold, anoxic and organic-rich deep-sea environments, such as in the Black Sea, where methane emissions fuel the authigenic accretion of calcium carbonate structures via microbial ...
Desarrollo costero y ambientes marino-costeros en Bahía Culebra, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Coastal development and marine ecosystems in Culebra Bay, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Bahía Culebra ha experimentado un proceso acelerado de desarrollo costero desde la implementación del proyecto Polo Turístico Golfo de Papagayo. Este trabajo analiza el cambio temporal en el estado de salud sus ecosistemas ...
Natural ocean acidification at Papagayo upwelling system (north Pacific Costa Rica): implications for reef development
Numerous experiments have shown that ocean acidification impedes coral calcification, but knowledge about in situ reef ecosystem response to ocean acidification is still scarce. Bahía Culebra, situated at the northern ...
