Sanderson, B.; Redden, A.; Broome, J. (2012). Sediment-Laden Ice Measurements and Observations, and Implications for Potential Interactions of Ice and Large Woody Debris with Tidal Turbines in Minas Passage.

Abstract: 

The report is one of three reports submitted under the overall project “3-D Acoustic Tracking of Fish, Sediment-Laden Ice, and Large Wood Debris in the Minas Passage of the Bay of Fundy” Research Project Duration: October 1, 2009 - December 31, 2011 Grant Recipients (PIs): Dr. Michael Stokesbury and Dr. Anna M. Redden Institution Holding Grant: Acadia University

 

Dr. Stokesbury and Dr. Redden, in collaboration with the Ocean Tracking Network and a broad team of researchers and consultants, are using VEMCO animal tracking technology to complete in-situ testing of the path, depth and velocity of fish and objects passing through the Minas Passage. Using hydrodynamic models, they will determine the potential for interaction of fish and objects with turbines installed in the water column, and provide advice on risk and mitigation to regulators and developers.
