Indirect effects of port activities: hydrodynamics applied to sediment transport and environnement

Description
Maritime activities (commercial and pleasure navigation) can induce indirect effects on the environment. The project is particularly interested in studying their effects on bank erosion (Part 1) and the navigation channel (Part 2). In Part 1, the effects of commercial and pleasure navigation will be compared. In Part 2, the aim is to predict using a 3D model the increase in turbidity and the decrease of dissolved oxygen during dredging and immersion operations. From four approaches (field measurements, laboratory tests, modeling and mathematical simulations, sociological and legal surveys on risk perception), a table of opportunities and navigation scenarios wil...
