OEER/OETR/FORCE Technical Information Sharing Meeting

Environmental Research and Monitoring related to Tidal Energy Development in the Fundy

The Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy (FORCE) and the OEER and OETR Associations jointly held an Information Sharing Meeting on January 29, 2010, at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth NS.

The objective of the Meeting was to provide an opportunity for FORCE and the OEER and OETR Associations’ funded tidal researchers to present and discuss research currently being undertaken relating to tidal energy in Nova Scotia. By providing an overview of the work underway, this should eliminate the duplication of work, thereby optimizing research collaboration.
