Webinar #4 in Annex IV Environmental Webinar Series

Sponsored by Ocean Energy Systems (OES)

Febuary 3, 2015 @ 16:00 - 17:30 UTC



As energy is extracted from coastal or estuarine systems by wave or tidal energy converters, changes may occur to the physical oceanography, including alternations in water flow, sediment transport, and water quality, as well as decreases in the tidal currents and tidal elevation.  These effects will not be measurable for pilot or small-scale marine energy installations. This webinar will feature three modeling approaches that examine potential changes to physical systems.  As wave and tidal farms are installed at the commercial scale, measurements may be made to validate the models.
