Predicting Zebra Mussel Transport in Rivers and Estuaries

Major Goals and Objectives

  • Identify the main mechanisms affecting physical transport in the Illinois and Hudson Rivers
  • Model the less well-understood mechanisms in detail 
  • Construct a single model that combines the physical transport mechanisms with the biology and population dynamics
  • Identify the processes controlling the transport and settlement patterns
