BASIC : Cartegena
The study monitored upstream impacts on freshwater runoff, from the Dique Canal into Cartagena Bay via the Magdalena River, and the effects on the bay’s hydrodynamic processes of water renewal. The presentation reports on the Basin Sea Interactions with Communities (BASIC) project in terms of climate change conditions and socio-economic change. The uses of marine waters are examined along with pollution research and water quality monitoring. Results of the water analysis show types of contamination in sediments and fish and where the contaminants originate. Coastal communities require early warnings to alert them to pollution and extreme weather events. The presentation is in English and Spanish.
