Assessment of Hydrodynamic Impacts throughout the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine due to Tidal Energy Extraction by Tidal Lagoons

The researchers extended existing hydrodynamic models of tidal flows in the Bay of Fundy to simulate the presence and operation of a tidal lagoon project located in the Minas Basin. They attempted to predict and identify changes in water levels, potential impacts on the flow of sediments, tide range and circulation throughout the Bay of Fundy.
