Coastal model helps create awareness and understand changes in the coastal environment
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Jun 4, 2018
While local issues of river health are dominating the news in New Zealand, the flow-on effect of deteriorating catchments may not be obvious but is key to understanding changes occurring in the coastal environment. The Enviroscape models are helping us creating awareness and understanding of connectivity between ecosystems with schools groups.
