Predictive Modeling/Spatial Planning, NY Bight

CSS designed and implemented this integrated data acquisition, data management, and statistical predictive modeling to assess the technical feasibility of selecting optimal locations for placing wind farms while minimizing impacts to seabirds. We developed regional ecosystem maps delineating seabird species occurrence and abundance, integrating NOAA’s oceanic and atmospheric observational data. We coordinated this effort with NOAA partners including BOEM, USGS, USFWS, DOE; state, regional, industry, and academic groups; and NGOs. This project received the NOAA Bronze Medal
