Methods of bird-watching
Analyzes of offshore occurrence of migratory birds based on a MultiSenor system (MultiBIRD)
Avitec Research GbR
- What are the cumulative effects of offshore wind farms on migratory birds?
- How do migrating and resting birds respond to a wind farm/barrier from multiple wind farms?
- Does it come to large/small-scale avoidance behavior or is the wind farm flown through?
- What effects do wind farm effects have on the population level of migratory bird species?
- Can collision rates be determined per type (group)?
- What is the train behavior in bad weather conditions (fog/rain)?
- How does the operating condition of wind turbines affect the behavior of migratory and resting birds?
- Is it possible to develop a predictive model for mass train events?
- Under which weather conditions do mass train events occur?
- How are the rest birds distributed in the wind farm (avoidance behavior, habituation)?
- What are the train intensities in ranges (altitudes) greater than 1.5 km?
- What could be an improved detection system for offshore migratory birds?
The research project "Analyzes of offshore occurrence of migratory birds on the basis of a MultiSenor system - MultiBIRD Phase III" was awarded by the BSH as an R & D mission with the aim to open questions on bird migration through new research and development approaches or innovative analysis methods to help answer the ongoing development of offshore wind farms.
