dc.description A hierarchical classification system was developed for West Coast estuaries that identified three regions (based on climate, latitude, and oceanography) and four estuary types distinguished by the relative degree of influence of the hydrodynamic forcing mechanisms of waves, tides, and rivers. en_US
dc.description.abstract This assessment outlines an enhanced planning approach for West Coast estuaries that incorporates an evaluation of the regional context for estuarine conservation and recommends an approach to site-scale planning with more focus on ecological processes and functions. en_US
