CESAM researchers participate in a project with IPMA
Published in 9/9/2013
A group of researchers of CESAM, constituted by Jesús Dubert, Rita Nolasco and João Lencart, participates in the IMPROVE project 'Inner shelf hydrographic and biological processes controlling invertebrate population in the Portuguese coast, using decapods as models', which is coordinated by the Portuguese Institute of Ocean and Atmosphere (IPMA).
The overall aim of this proposal is to increase the understanding of oceanographic and biological processes of importance for recruitment of invertebrate larvae in coastal upwelling systems, like the Portuguese west coast. The purpose is to couple biological models to inner shelf circulation models to understand and potentially forecast recruitment variability of decapod populations in the areas of their distribution.
