Objectives:

This project will characterize the nepheloid layers in the Changjiang estuary and develop new numerical models to investigate these layers. It will examine the role of the nepheloid layers in determining coastal ocean dynamics and in transporting sediments from the river to the East China Sea. A comparison study of the nepheloid layer and sediment processes before and after the construction of the Three Gorges Dam (TGD) will also be conducted in this project.

Description of Work:

 

This research will use a resource governance approach in a quantitative and qualitative examination of extractive industry/host country relationships, to determine to what extent government policy and foreign investment in resource extraction can contribute to economic and social development.
