"We used a hydrodynamic circulation model to investigate the potential origin (backward simulations) and fate (forward simulations) of northern sandlance (Ammodytes dubius) from Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. The contour plots show the percentage of particles from all runs for each of 27 years (1990-2016)."

The findings of this Lagrangian drift study were summarized in a white paper to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management
