Dr. Marine Randon


Shipping traffic continues to grow in the Salish Sea, with future projections worldwide indicating this trend will continue. With more ships comes an increase in the risk of cetaceans being struck by vessels and/or colliding with their propellers. Key amongst these cetaceans is the endangered population of killer whales, the southern resident killer whales. Using existing acoustic hydrophone nodes operating in the Salish Sea, as well as visual observer data from experts in the field, Marine is working with Dr Mike Dowd to develop the methodological framework for a stochastic movement forecast model as an advance warning system for commercial ship pilots.
