Executive Director Steve Tambini will describe how the Delaware River Basin Commission is using sophisticated hydrodynamic and water quality modeling tools to drive water resource management. Two significant efforts will be highlighted:
1. evaluation of impacts of climate changes on salt front and salinity gradients in the estuary; and
2. the degree to which dissolved oxygen conditions can be improved within the tidal system, and the highest attainable fishery uses that can thereby be supported.
