Comparison of Carbon, Nitrogen and Phosphorus Fluxes in Mexican Coastal Lagoons
Coastal lagoons along the 12,000 km shoreline of Mexico are numerous, diverse, and well-studied. According to Contreras (1993) Mexico has about 180 coastal lagoons and other estuarine areas, with about 10,000 km2 on the Pacific coast and 10,000 km2 on the Gulf of Mexico. These lagoons are subject to extremely varied degrees and kinds of human pressure due to direct uses and indirect insults.
