BRI researcher and deputy director, Wing Goodale, recently published a new paper on wildlife and offshore wind development. The article, Assessing the cumulative exposure of wildlife to offshore wind energy development, was published in the Journal of Environmental Management, and outlines a Cumulative Exposure (CE) model that can be used to: evaluate the incremental impact of wind farm development; forecast alternate future development scenarios; and assess the cumulative exposure of many species simultaneously.
