Study to Examine Bristol Harbor, RI
August 22, 2013
With some residents in Bristol, Rhode Island, concerned about what impact new docks and moorings might have on their harbor, the town is undertaking a study, according to an article on EastBayRI.com.
Helped by a $30,000 grant from the Rhode Island Foundation, the group Save Bristol Harbor contracted with Christopher Kincaid, Ph.D., a professor of oceanography at the University of Rhode Island, to build a predictability model that will collect data on the ebb and flow of the harbor. The model is a computer program that can measure what effect physical changes could have on the environment within Bristol Harbor.
