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

Additional Projects

Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs)

We provide site-specific in situ monitoring coupled with predictive modeling, to provide an early warning system to advise health officials and resource managers on how to best focus their efforts to protect health and environment.

Development support of NOAA/NOA OceanReports

CSS’s Team helped create the OceanReports web-based tool that assists in the analysis of coastal and marine resources for commerce, development, and conservation.

Biogeographic Assessment of the Main Hawaiian Islands (MHI)

CSS compiled and visualized data showing the distribution of habitats and marine organisms, to establish a baseline for assessing and monitoring potential environmental impacts from renewable energy projects.
