Funding

This work was undertaken as part of the Seine-Aval program coordinated by the GIP Seine-Aval. GIP Seine-Aval is a partnership involving ten institutions and organizations: the Normandy region; the Calvados, Eure and Seine-Maritime departments; two industrial associations (the UIC and the ASICEN); the French national government, represented by the Regional Directorate for Environment, Development and Housing (DREAL Normandie); the Seine-Normandy Water Agency; and the Ports of Rouen and Le Havre. This work also benefits from the financial support of the REBENT programme coordinated by Sandrine Derrien (Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle) and funded by the Loire-Brittany Water Agency, the Brittany region and the Regional Directorate for Environment, Development and Housing (DREAL Bretagne). It is part of the Ph.D. thesis of L.B. partly supported by the Brittany region. The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.
