Marine Animal Movement Portal

DATA

Identify the location of vulnerable marine species and model their response to human impacts

Marine Animal Movement Portal – Online access to data and simulations for environmental assessments

Marine Animal Movement Portal

Ecosystem-based management of human activities depends on us knowing the location of vulnerable species and how they respond to human impacts such as oil spills and underwater noise from shipping, airguns and pile driving. However, this information is rarely available for animals that are free ranging such as seabirds and marine mammals. Plus, conventional risk assessments do not factor in these movements.
The Marine Animal Movement Portal provides easy, online access to a comprehensive description of the presence and movement of vulnerable species through a combination of advanced dynamic habitat and agent-based modelling. With this information at hand, you can identify environmental issues early and throughout the project cycle to ease approval processes and reduce scheduling and investment risks.

Identify risks earlier and more accurately

Develop more focused early intervention and mitigation measures.

Expedite the license approval process

Provide proof that assessment has been done using the best available data including animal movements to safeguard the well-being of vulnerable species.

Reduce scheduling and investment risks

Plan for more targeted surveys based on best available modelling data.

Promote stakeholder accountability

More strongly convey environmental awareness to local communities, national authorities and non-profits.

Access the portal quickly and easily

Launch the Marine Animal Movement Portal directly from your internet browser, no hardware required.

Key application areas

Use the Marine Animal Movement Portal to:

  • Run on-screen simulations of Metocean parameters and animal movements for initial risk screening and project planning
  • Assess the effects of oil spill and noise based on real-time simulations to benefit the Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs)
  • Download and further analyse state-of-the-art ecological modelling data to support EIAs and emergency response planning
