Site Characterization: Geophysical and Environmental Aspects for Offshore Wind

Monday, 6 May
Technical / Poster Session Offshore Wind Thread
This session provides an overview of various environmental, geophysical, and geotechnical aspects of site investigation as it pertains to offshore wind. Papers will examine bird/bat interactions, benthic mapping and analysis, fishing and EMF impacts, data visualization, geological constraints and fault displacement, and metocean condition impacts on windfarms. The session will provide a wide perspective on the different disciplines and science needed to assess baseline conditions, potential impacts, and site suitability and constructability in the offshore wind environment.
