BIOenergetic Modeling Approach for Sargassum dynamics
BIOMAS is a 4 year project (2023-2026) funded by ANR and FACEPE (Brazil). It focuses on the dynamics of the three morphotypes of pelagic Sargassum of the Tropical Atlantic, through in situ monitoring, experiments and modeling. The aim is to improve our understanding of the biological causes of the proliferation.
