Near-Shore Zones: Koserow and Tromper Wiek

  • U. Schiewer
Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 197)

Because of their special geological and hydrographical properties, near-shore zones are thought of as highly productive ecosystems serving as a potential source for the organic carbon deposition of the deeper Baltic Sea areas (Bodungen and Zeitschel 1996; Emeis et al. 1999; Witt et al. 1999). However, since the hydrodynamic, chemical and biological features of near-shore coastal zones are highly diverse, this general statement was tested by carrying out small-scale investigations at two distinct sites taking into consideration the specific properties of the investigated areas. The two distinct areas of the German coast in the southern Baltic Sea selected were “Tromper Wiek” (TW), at the northwest part of the island of Rügen, and “Koserow” (KW), at the middle part of the island of Usedom. The test sites are located at the south-western end of the Baltic Proper, near to the Darß sill. TW is located near to the Arkona Basin.
