Groundwater in Arctic Lagoon Ecosystems

The physical and chemical dynamics of groundwater flow across the land-sea interface in Arctic lagoon ecosystems


Coastal areas in the Arctic are prone to the consequences of climate change due to their connection with both the terrestrial and marine environment. These consequences can include changes to river runoff, increased coastal erosion and permafrost thaw. Changes to coastal groundwater discharge however has been understudied given that the contribution of these flows may be far more important for coastal hydologic and biogeochemical cycles than currently recognized.
