PUBLIC PROFILE

Southern New England Offshore Wind Energy Science Forum Home

This 2-day event (December 11 – 12, 2017) will present the priority research topics of interest to resource users – including fishermen, municipalities, and recreational boaters – and state and federal regulators. Topics will likely include the effects of the construction and operation of offshore wind farms on habitat, fish, marine mammals, avian species, and people. This event is being organized by the University of Rhode Island (URI) Graduate School of Oceanography, URI Coastal Resources Center and sponsored by the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council and U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management with financial support from Deepwater Wind and Rhode Island Sea Grant.

Please join us this December in Rhode Island to learn about the completed and ongoing research that is taking place at the Block Island Wind Farm and within Southern New England to improve the management and development of offshore wind energy.
