DOE is proposing to provide funding to Biodiversity Research Institute (BRI) design and implement a research project to model wildlife densities and movements across spatial and temporal scales on the mid-Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf. The study is intended to produce data and reports on environmental factors that influence the development of offshore wind energy in the mid-Atlantic Ocean. This study would include information and data gathering, surveys (aviation and marine), wildlife monitoring, modeling, reporting, and technical advice.
