Main field of expertise:
Name of organisation:
Type of organisation:
Main project your organisation is involved with, in relation to (sub)tropical biodiversity:
Studying ocean currents and transport pathways affecting small islands. Larvae, pollutants are strongly affected by ocean current and winds and we often use numerical models and historical data to study the transept pathways of these elements.
Good practices your organisation could share on tropical and subtropical sustainable biodiversity management:
Use physical data to monitor and predict the fate of pollutants and species in the NE Atlantic
Numerical models; in situ and satellite historical data analysis.
Mapping regions with high probability of settlement due to retention mechanisms. Mapping regions most vulnerable to pollution events due to retention processes.
