Right Wind: Resolving Protected Species Space-Use Conflicts in Wind Energy Areas
Technical Challenge Area:
Environment and Conflicting Use
N/A (Currently Underway)
Cornell University, in partnership with the New England Aquarium and Lautec US, aims to provide an innovative decision support tool to offshore wind developers that allows them to reduce financial risks and better mitigate spatial use conflicts.
Model right whale spatial and temporal distributions in the MA/RI wind energy areas and explicitly estimate the associated uncertainty.
