Comparative analysis

WP5: A general biogeochemical model for coastal lagoons was developed within the COHERENS 3D framework. The model was implemented, validated with field data and coupled with a watershed model also developed in the DITTY project.

The watershed model is a combination of SWAT, MODFLOW and QUAL2E models and had also been developed, implemented and validated for a specific watershed that is artificially managed using pumps and channels, i.e. water does not move following gravity.

A set of thermodynamic indicators of ecological status was also developed applying the energy approach. Scenario analysis concerning clam-farming practices, following stakeholders priorities was carried out using the developed models. A reduced version of the model was incorporated into the Decision Support System developed by Siena University for Sacca di Goro.
