Climate change and anthropogenic activities pose challenging questions for coastal managers, and decision support systems thus become of major concern. Models have proven to be very powerful tools that provide answers regarding contaminant dispersion, help to assess the impacts of human activities such as dredging and trawling, and have several engineering applications (coastal planning, infrastructure design, etc.). This project aims at developing a numerical tool enables to simulate sediment dynamics (SD) in the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence (EGSL).
