Detail

A team of Environment Agency-sponsored researchers has developed an accurate mathematical model of bacterial pollution in the Severn estuary and Bristol Channel, based on studies of bacterial discharges, transport and decay. The model will help to improve understanding of how bacterial pollution from different sources affects the water quality of nearby beaches.
