Impact of the shellfish farming installations on the sedimentary dynamics.
Oyster cases and mussel beds are artificial impediments disturbing the tide stream flow and the waves propagation. Sedimentation and turbidity modifications then occure and threaten the shellfish farming activity.
Those reports are not the most recents but, nowadays, there is not any accurate study of the hydrodynamic modification induced by those installations.
This PhD project has to enable the quantification of the mussel beds and oyster cases effects on the local flow, on a small scale, the determination of their influence circle and the evaluation of the morphodynamic modifications induced at a bay scale, in order to consider those structures in a larger space resolution pattern.
Those works lay on in-site measurements, in-laboratory measurements and digital patterns.
“My “involvement” is more like the continuation of my college course and is mostly motivated by a will to learn, especially about a topic and a methodology that highly interest me.”
