Coupled hydrodynamic-oyster population model for Breton Sound Estuary

Duration

August 2012 - August 2014

Narrative

This project proposes to develop a spatial, process-driven hydrodynamic and oyster population coupled model which can be used to project and predict the impacts of coastal restoration activities, coupled with climate change (relative sea level rise) that will critically inform decisions related to maintaining sustainable and productive oyster aquaculture.
