Automated Real-Time Marine Mammal Observations: Recent Advancements in Technology

Panelist speaker:

Ross Eaton
Principal Scientist and Director of Marine Systems

8:30 AM ET | 28 April 2022

Mr. Eaton and other panelists will discuss how advancements in passive acoustic, eDNA, seafloor lander, radar, vision, machine learning, LEO satellite, and USV technologies set the stage to improve how we study and track the behaviors of marine mammals to ensure better protection. By forming a network of subsea, surface buoy, USV, and platform-borne observations, it is now possible to collect observations into a single 4-D data model to identify and track marine mammal behavior. These new insights will allow windfarm operators and subcontractors to improve operations to protect marine mammals and comply with current regulations. Mr. Eaton will be discussing “the state of the possible.”
