Workpackage 2 – Pollution flows

Our project consists of six workpackages. On this page you can find information about workpackage 1 Pollution flows. In the future you also can find the research here.

Tasks workpackage 2 Pollution flows

  • Map nutrient runoff from islands and ships and quantify regional and local pollution flows through tracer studies with hydrodynamic models13 (targets for monitoring in WP1) using nutrient flow modelling
  • Construct island elevation maps to simulate flows of sediments, nutrients, plastics and solid waste across the land-sea interface and identify their sources and sinks (informed by models from WP1) using aerial imagery analysis, drone surveys, automated catchment detection
  • Assess the impact of sedimentation, nutrients, plastics, and solid waste on coastal coral, seagrass and mangrove ecosystems (biodiversity indicators from WP1, input interviews WP3 and citizen science WP4)
  • Interregional comparison of impacts of different sanitation practices on the resilience of MPAs with a reef health status (Dashboard indicators WP5) T2.5 (commercial party) Develop and implement sanitation solutions and guidelines for local implementation, improving ecosystem and human health (knowledge transfer WP6)
