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

This project assessed how the dynamics of sedimentation change when energy is extracted from a macro-tidal system. The differences in tidal prism and energy between neap and spring tidal cycles were used as a proxy for energy extraction by in-stream tidal power devices.
