Background Oregon Inlet is a narrow, shallow, and dynamic waterway connecting Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds to the Atlantic Ocean and separating Bodie and Hatteras Islands, two in a chain of barrier islands commonly referred to as North Carolina's Outer Banks (fig. 1). The coastal marine ecosystem considered here includes the fresh and tidal waters of lower rivers along the North and South Carolina (NC and SC) coasts, the estuaries, and the continental shelf extending eastward to the western edge of the Gulf Stream (see Mallin, Burkholder, Cahoon, & Posey, ).The landward boundaries extend approximately 76°W longitude and 36°30′N latitude, to 80°42   hydrology, and geochemistry of each regional aquifer system. including the wider parts of major estuaries.
