This project will assess how past, present, and future climate and land use scenarios influence the quality of natural resources in the Suwannee River estuary. The team will develop a predictive model to evaluate different watershed management actions, based on water quality and nutrient flow. These predictions, combined with food web modelling, will project how changes in freshwater quality and quantity will influence fish and shellfish populations.
