Workshop "modelling the Wadden Sea" 5 november 2010

On 5 November 2010 over fifty scientists from The Netherlands and some from abroad gathered at the Marine Museum in Den Helder to exchange knowledge on the modelling of processes in the Wadden Sea.

The workshop covered both ecological processes (algal growth, food webs, self-organisation patterns in populations of ecosystem engineers) and physical processes (sediment dynamics, flow patterns). During the workshop, organised by the Netherlands Centre for Coastal Research (NCK) and the Wadden Academy, the convergence between the different fields of science and the various research institutes was clearly visible.
