Abstract

Tidal creek ecosystems are the primary aquatic link between stormwater runoff form the land and estuaries. Small tidal creeks begin in upland areas and drain into larger creeks forming a network. The creeks increase in size until they join a tidal river, sound, bay, or harbor that ultimately conect to the coastal ocean. The upper regions or headwaters of tidal creeks are "first responders" to stormwater runoff and are an important habitat for evaluating the impacts of coastal development on aquatic ecosystems.
