Tidal Energy Library

FERN has developed a collection of published and unpublished reports, data and other scientific resources relating to the environmental, engineering and socio-economic aspects of tidal power development. The purpose of this collection is to facilitate knowledge sharing and dissemination by providing a central, open repository for tidal energy and Bay of Fundy related resources accessible to FERN member researchers. 

Please help us expand our collection. Contact the FERN coordinator to contribute relevant information products (e.g. publications, reports or data) from your research to the FERN Resource Library.

We would be happy to help you locate the information you need
