2020 State of the Science Workshop
State of the Science Workshop on Wildlife and Offshore Wind Energy 2020: Cumulative Impacts
The 2020 State of the Science Workshop will be held virtually this year in response to COVID-19. Plenary presentations and Q&A panel discussions will occur via a web-based platform throughout the week of November 16-20. Smaller working meetings will be held virtually in late 2020 and early 2021, and efforts will culminate in a final webinar in the Spring of 2021 to report the outcomes of the breakout group efforts.
Workshop efforts will remain focused on assessing the state of the knowledge regarding offshore wind development's cumulative effects on populations and ecosystems and working to identify key studies that could be conducted in the next 3-5 years to improve our understanding of cumulative biological impacts as the offshore wind industry develops in the U.S.
Given that the event is now fully virtual, no registration fee will be charged. If you have already registered for the meeting, your registration will be refunded in the coming weeks. Please contact Edward Jenkins for more information.
