The three objectives of the modeling effort are to:
1. Refine and test predictive models for scaling individual-level effects (croaker and sheepshead minnow) to the population level. This objective is under the program component entitled "Reproductive Function in Estuarine Fishes."
2. Use reproductive and dissolved oxygen (DO) stress indicator data for population modeling of grass shrimp. This objective is under the program component entitled "Molecular Indicators of Dissolved Oxygen Stress in Crustaceans."
3. Integration of results among the components of the CEER-GOM program. This objective is part of the effort for more programwide integration.
The progress of the Louisiana State University (LSU) modeling group for Year 2 of the CEER-GOM program is summarized below, organized by model and linked to the objectives.
