Abstract:

Our goal is to build an ecological modeling framework that facilitates understanding of the way in which at-sea condition and health of various species of marine mammals changes over time. This project will develop statistical tools to allow mathematical models of the population consequences of acoustic disturbance to be fitted to data from marine mammal populations. We will work closely with Phase II of the ONR PCAD Working Group, and will provide statistical support to that group.
