Mikaela Freeman, a graduate from the School of Marine and Environmental Affairs at the University of Washington recently published an article in Marine Policy. The study creates a marine potential conflict index to assess potential conflicts between current marine uses. It also identifies the marine uses that have the highest potential conflict with one another due to the fact that the uses intensely occupy the same space at similar times of the year. Combining factors of space, time, and intensity in a Marine Potential Conflict Index is a novel approach to identify the potential conflict between current ocean uses.
