Interdisciplinary Modeling Work

This collaborative research program (see current research grants) is focused on understanding how climate forcing affects an exploited benthic dominant species in the mid-Atlantic, the surf clam (Spisula solidissima) and with human components of the system, namely harvesting, processing, distribution, management and industry economics. The project focus is on the fisheries themselves, including harvesting, processing, and distribution, and the dominant governance institutions, which consist of laws, scientific enterprises, management councils, and activities such as data collection and enforcement.
