Dock Design with the Environment in Mind




This interactive CD-ROM allows the viewer to 'build' a dock while minimizing impacts to eelgrass habitat. Emphasizing the ecological importance of healthy eelgrass meadows, the CD demonstrates how a fixed or floating dock's orientation, height, and width can be adjusted to the benefit of the grasses. The CD is a suitable outreach tool for nature centers, estuarine research reserves, classrooms, and other educational settings. It will also be of use to managers and consultants who need to provide information to the public about boat dock designs and their impacts. The CD is designed to run on both IBM- compatible PCs and Macintosh computer systems.
