Marine Animal Movement Portal: Gain crucial insights to support your EIAs

An ecosystem-based management approach requires knowledge of vulnerable species' locations and their responses to human activities like oil spills and underwater noise from shipping, airguns and pile driving. However, this data is often unavailable for free-ranging animals such as seabirds and marine mammals, limiting the effectiveness of traditional risk assessments.

 

How we can help

The Marine Animal Movement Portal addresses this issue by utilising advanced dynamic habitat and agent-based modelling techniques to provide comprehensive descriptions of the presence and movement of vulnerable species. With this tool, you can now identify environmental issues early in the project cycle, easing approval processes and reducing scheduling and investment risks. By integrating MIKE Powered by DHI's industry-recognised 1D and 2D hydrodynamics, habitat and agent-based modelling technology, the Marine Animal Movement Portal offers a powerful solution in a single tool.

 

Key application areas

 

Rely on the Marine Animal Movement Portal to:

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