Abstract

This report offers a structured approach to tackling various types of estuarine problems and draws on the experiences of the EMPHASYS Consortium undertaken in Phase 1 of the research. Answers to such questions as "What tools and techniques are available and what are their limitations?", "How can the results be interpreted?" can be found in this report. Along with a summary of the steps to be taken when applying the available methods to a particular plan or activity. The guide stresses the importance of fully appreciating available historic information concerning the site/estuary, the requirements for further data collection, the importance of calibration and validation of any method applied, and synthesis of the available data and model results to develop an understanding of how the estuary functions. Building from this understanding it becomes possible to explore "what-if?" scenarios for development and change.
