Effects of Energy Extraction on Sediment Dynamics in Intertidal Ecosystems of the Minas Basin

Principal Investigators:

Dr. Danika van Proosdij, Saint Mary’s University

Start Date: December 2009

End Date: October 2012

This project aims at assessing how the dynamics of sedimentation change when energy is extracted from a macrotidal system. The differences in tidal prism and energy between neap and spring tidal cycles will be used as a proxy for energy extraction due to in-stream tidal power devices.
