Webinar #3 in Annex IV Environmental Webinar Series

October 27, 2014

 

Summary

Leading up to International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE 2014) in Halifax, Annex IV sponsored an environmental webinar focused on tidal energy research associated with the Bay of Fundy tidal site. Due to its geographic location and the overall shape of its basin, the Bay of Fundy is home to the largest tidal ranges in the world, reaching over 16 meters. With such an enormous tidal range, substantial amounts of water moves through this bay every day making it an exceptional tidal energy resource. This webinar highlights the work being done by four scientists who focus their research on better understanding the tidal energy resource and potential in the Bay of Fundy, and how tidal energy developments there may affect the surrounding marine environment.
