Fluids Seminar: How Vegetation Alters Water Motion, and the Feedbacks to Environmental System Structure and Function

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Professor H. Nepf, MIT For over a century vegetation has been removed from channels and coastal zones to facilitate navigation and development. In recent decades, however, we have recognized the ecologic and economic benefits of aquatic vegetation. It removes nutrients, providing a buffer against coastal eutrophication. Marshes and mangroves provide coastal protection by damping waves and storm surge. Through its ecosystem services, aquatic vegetation contributes economic benefits worth over ten trillion dollars per year.
