July, 2008: New Release for WebDrogue Marine Drift Prediction Model

Noreca Consulting was recently awarded a research grant by Acadia University's Environmental Science Department to improve the user interface of WebDrogue, a marine drift prediction software developed by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), Canada. The new version has now capabilities for assessing the connectivity of marine protected areas at the North American East Coast. WebDrogue is now able to run simulation scenarios for multiple drift particles linked to a database for hourly wind direction and wind speed. Users are able to set up polygons for marine protected areas and simulate their connectivity.
