Monitoring marine and coastal impacts from various sources on the West Coast

Description 

Research is needed on the environmental impacts of various activities on the coastal and ocean ecosystem on the west coast of the island. What are the risks and amounts of coastal erosion? What are the levels of municipal waste and do they affect water quality? What are the potential impacts of fracking? Providing baseline data on the region’s marine resources is very important and necessary, especially with increasing development in many areas. This research would need to be highly connected with local people and networks.
