Analysis of the TIDE Estuarine Conflict Matrices


As described earlier in text, the conflict matrix process has allowed the comparison of conflict interactions both between the TIDE estuaries and between estuarine uses within each estuary.

The process has highlighted a number of well established antagonisms between key sectoral uses in estuaries, as well as areas of synergistic opportunity. This has allowed the comparison of conflict levels to be made across the TIDE estuaries and for a series of conflict and benefit relationship typologies to be identified at a north-west European estuarine level and these have been described in Section 5 of this report.
