Master Thesis within EVREST by Miguel Amado

My name is Miguel Amado and I’m currently doing my Master thesis entitle “Salt marsh response to changing hydrodynamics: the case of Ancão Inlet migration (Ria Formosa coastal lagoon)” in the University of Algarve, included in the EVREST project . Using a 60 year timeseries of aerial photographs and orthophotos we intend to study recent evolution of salt marsh areas neighbouring the tidal inlet, the influence of inlet natural migrating stages and human relocations to the surrounding salt marsh vegetation and the development of salt marsh ecological resilience thresholds regarding the variability of the forcing mechanisms that provoke inlet changes.

I have a degree on Marine Sciences and I am finishing the Marine and Coastal Systems Master, both on Universidade do Algarve.
