A new model seeks to enable stakeholders to identify where endangered blue whales are most likely to be, so that ships can avoid hitting them. The research was published after relating the movements of more than 100 tagged blue whales to daily oceanographic conditions.
The University of Rhode Island (URI) developed and used an acoustic device to detect whales near the Block Island offshore wind farm. Specifically, MARIMBA (Marine Mammal Monitoring at Block Island Using Acoustics) was developed by six ocean engineering students who deployed it in close vicinity of the 30MW offshore wind project.
