Project title: SARGASSUM TO THE FRENCH WEST INDIES
Clg Gal Degaulle Le moule Guadeloupe 20 Student’s age: 12-13 years old, 14-15 years old
How to eradicate this pollution ?
Summary of the project
Every year the beaches of Guadeloupe are invaded by massive strandings of sargassum.
This leads to the destruction of the pelagic ecosystem and endangers the health of populations.
How can this be remedied ?
Main results and Conclusions
After modelling and simulating the sargassum accumulation zones from 2018 to 2021, we made a projection for April 2025 using two scenarios:
-if high volcanic activity –> extensive accumulation zone
-if low volcanic activity –> reduced accumulation zone.
What’s Next? Actions to make a difference and help lessen the problem
We have proposed a few solution :
-creation of dams
-turn sargassum into syrup.
