Things I’d like to know

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW?

Do Starfish respond to the cycles of the moon?

What volume of water comes in and out of the Exe estuary every day?

What are the little rows of upside-down V shaped boxes out on the mud flats?

There are loads of things we are curious about: how the estuary and the sea works; what creatures live in it; how it changes over time; how many people work with the estuary; how the weather affects what happens here; what the impacts of sea level rise might be; how the different elements in this system work together. This is a space for asking and sharing questions and hopefully finding out what you want to know.  Please send your questions – however strange, simple or unusual they may seem.  We will display all the questions on the Tidelines website.

WHY ARE WE COLLECTING QUESTIONS?

These questions help us to work out what people are interested in so we can shape Tidelines events and research in the future to reflect this.  There may be questions that we can find the answers to by asking people with particular knowledge or expertise, who we know or work with. In which case we can post up responses to these questions on our blog. We might also be able to do additional research, perhaps in the community or working with academic colleagues, to find out the answers.

HOW TO SEND IN YOUR QUESTIONS?

Send us your question, there is no limit to how many.  Use the form or email info@tidelines.uk and also let us know who you are.
