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.
