Monitoring and modelling coastal lagoons: Making management tools for aquatic resources in North Africa (MELMARINA)
A cross-disciplinary (hydrology, ecology, remote sensing, fisheries, hydro-ecological modelling) research project coordinated by UCL involving two European and four North African partners: UCL, DHI (Denmark), University of Sousse (Tunisia), Institut National Des Sciences et Technologies de la Mer, (Tunisia), Institut Scientifique, Rabat (Morocco) and the National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences (Egypt). The research pioneered the application of coordinated hydro-ecological monitoring within large North African lagoon environments as well as paleoecological studies using dated sediment cores, the application of state-of-the art coupled hydraulic / ecological models, the parameterisation of these models using remote sensing and their application to assess restoration options. MELMARINA led to a special edition of the peer-reviewed journal Hydrobiologia as well as a number of other publications. Funding source: EU Framework V INCO Med Programme.
