Offshore Renewable Energy in the U.S.: Effects of Noise and EMF on Benthic Communities

October 20

Assessment of the influence of noise and EMF (energy emission) on benthic communities at a local and larger ecosystem-scale during preconstruction, construction, in the operational phase, and in relation to decommissioning. The key elements of energy emission that need to be considered will be discussed. The current status of knowledge will be referred to and where relevant, techniques to reduce energy emissions will be highlighted, including any known limitations in relation to the benthic receptors (including different life stages where possible).

Presenters:

  • Louise Roberts, Postdoctoral Research Associate, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Cornell University.
  • Zoe Hutchinson, Postdoctoral Fellow, Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island
