Foraminifera are eukaryotic unicellular microorganisms inhabiting all marine environments. The study of these protists has huge potential implications and benefits. They are good indicators of global change and are also promising indicators of the environmental health of marine ecosystems. Nevertheless, much remains to be learned about foraminiferal ecology.

Storm water outfalls that flow into coastal waters can have significant potential impacts on human and environmental health. Elevated levels of pathogenic bacteria and viruses have been found in beach waters close to coastal storm water outfalls the world over, leading to closures of recreational beaches and shellfish harvesting areas as well as causing a variety of human illnesses.

In summary, the response patterns of benthic fauna near the Sand Island ocean outfall showed little or no indication of a strong influence by the diffuser effluent. The sampling methodology used in this study generally followed the recommendations of Swartz () and US EPA guidelines(EPA a, b), hereafter refered to as EPA procedures.

Thus far, 11 MLCDs have been established in such areas in Hawaii, The discharge of primary or secondary treated sewage effluent into the ocean in Hawaii through deep ocean outfalls causes no. Jinming Song, Liqin Duan, in World Seas: an Environmental Evaluation (Second Edition),  Marine-Based Pollution.

Marine-based pollution in the Yellow Sea is mainly from mariculture, waste dumping, oil and gas exploration, and oil spills.

In Jiangsu Province, sewage outfalls are located mostly in the vicinity of the mariculture and port areas. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) now requires that resort islands in the GBR treat their sewage effluent to a tertiary level, prior to discharge to the sea via ocean outfalls.

At Heron Island, the disposal of treated sewage effluent relies on groundwater recharge. Response of Benthic Ecosystems to Deep Ocean Sewage Outfalls in Hawaii: Nutrient Fluxes at the Sediment-Water Interface.

Domokos, Reka. Atmospherically Forced Mesoscale Barotropic Motions in the Central North Pacific. Dore, John. Hawaiian marine communities, high particulate loading from primary treated sewage results in a benthic and fish community response favoring particulate feeding species (Brock and SmithSmith et al.

Such benthic communities are best developed on hard substratum relative to soft substratum (Brock and Smith ). No pollution level effects on the benthic assemblages seem to be present, but fluctuations in indicator abundances may indicate a response to organic materials such as sewage outfalls.

future changes in benthic assemblages on O'ahu's south shore need to consider all possible organic sources including sewage effluent, fish farm wastes, land run. The impacts of sewage disposal on the demersal fish community were identified after approximately 2 years of operation of a deepwater outfall off Sydney, NSW Australia.

Gut-content analyses were used. coral reefs. Benthic photosynthesis increased in response to increased water turbidity. Increased respiration rates by benthic filter feeders resulted in low calcification rates for corals (Smith et a'81).

Diversion of sewage outfalls began inwith the final point-source discharge eliminated by Identifying Potential Knowledge Gaps For Hawaiʻi’s Cesspool Conversion Plan 1 Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this publication are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the view of the Water Resources Research Center or the University of Hawai‘i Sea Grant College Program.

To understand the patterns of cyanobacterial biogeography in relation to coastal environmental factors, we examined the diversity of planktonic and benthic cyanobacteria at 12 sites along the west coast of Hawaii's Big Island. We found distinct cyanobacterial communities in sediments compared to the water column.

The University of Hawaii Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) will conduct scientific monitoring of benthic fauna surrounding ocean disposal outlets of effluent from City and County of Honolulu (City) wastewater treatment While periodic assessment of the effect of the effluent from the Sand Island sewage outfall on the benthic.

Shallow-water (ecosystems in the surrounding waters of the Main Hawaii Islands are unique natural resources that must be preserved. The mosaic of habitats, including hard and soft corals, are home to a diversity of marine organisms, which provide important ecosystem services to the community of Hawaii, including fishing.

These activities were implemented in response to requirements outlined in the Mapping Implementation Plan developed by the Mapping and Information Synthesis Working Group (MISWG) of the.When the old sewage outfall pipe into Malama Bay was diverted to the new outfall pipe which extends approximately 2 m from shore (exclusive of a m long, multi-porthole diffuser) at a depth of m, no surface plume was observed and viruses were only sporadically recovered from ocean waters above the discharge pipes (zone of mixing).Figure C.1 provides an example of a deep water ocean outfall with a long multiport diffuser.
