Project description

We propose to develop primary habitability indexes quantifying the habitability of and primary production by marine ecosystems. These indexes shall be embedded as parameters in spatio-temporal models mimicking the dynamics of marine organisms such as shrimp that are of economic, environmental and social interest to Cuba.
