We are always looking for new research and partnership opportunities to build capacity and local knowledge.  Below you will find a list of potential research topics we would like to explore in the future.  If you have research that would help contribute to this or would like to partner together in the future, please feel free to contact us.

Research Wishlist

Lac Bay

  • Improved erosion mapping for adjacent areas
  • Impact of terrestrial sediment on mangrove health
  • Updated assessment on current extent of Lac Bay mangroves
  • Improved understanding of historical extent of the mangrove forest
  • Improved understanding of native flora composition of adjacent forested areas of Lac Bay
  • Quantify the extent of which proposed solutions (construction of dams, reforestation) help reduce sedimentation of Lac
  • Quantify the extent in which restoration is achieved through reopening of channels to improve water circulation
  • Modeling of water flow throughout the mangroves
  • Modeling the salinity gradient within the mangroves
  • Quantify the impact of fine sediments on the health and regrowth of mangroves
  • Updated study on the watershed area of Lac

Sargassum

  • Impact of sargassum on mangroves
  • Improved strategies for removing sargassum
  • Heavy metal content and impact of sargassum
