Resumen del proyecto:

Two coastal protected lagoons in Tunisia and Morocco are subject to pollutions due economic activities, waste water stations and agriculture releasing. Also, they are subject to sanding up due to natural and anthropic action. The aim is to safeguard their protection and to lead the development of sustainable strategies at a local scale. It is proposed to understand the lagoon morphodynamic evolution, determine the type and origin of pollutions and their behaviour in the physical environment, and assess the development strategy reducing the pollution risks. An approach using varied disciplines and tools permit to set up scenarios of lagoon morphodynamic and geochemical evolution, to assess the impacts of pollutants on the ecosystem, and to produce guidelines and recommendations in order to help public authorities in the decisions towards sustainable development.
