Project description

 

The Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) is the responsible nature conservation authority in the German exclusive economic zone (AWZ) as federal authority in the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety´s area of operations. The BfN is obliged to conduct monitoring programs for the Birds Directive (VRL), Habitats Directive (FFH-RL) and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSRL) within the framework of the executive orders in the AWZ. Investigations are executed with standardised ship- and aircraft-based surveys for example for seabirds, marine mammals, fishes, biotopes and benthos. Furthermore, extensive planar mappings of marine biotopes and habitat types are conducted on behalf of the BfN. Technical-electronic support tools for data evaluation, keeping and supply have to be created and tended for data accumulating in the context of monitoring and mappings. The ITAW as subcontractor of Con Terra GmbH with its present expertise in the subarea of marine mammal monitoring shall establish and advance the system existing within the BfN for data keeping and utilisation. Afterwards, it is planned to integrate not yet assessed data from investigations by the BfN, research and development projects as well as environmental impact assessments (UVP interference regulations) into the conjointly configured and developed database structure and coordinate the access modalities for the end-user.
