Abstract:

Long-term goals of this research are 1. Improving the knowledge about how ocean dynamics affect the ecology and distribution of marine mammals in different areas 2. Developing tools to predict marine mammal presence probability or density on the basis of selected environmental predictors 3. Creating the knowledge-based decisional framework to choose among potential mitigation measures
