Project term: April 2020 until September 2021
Sponsorship: Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency

Project description

The joint research project aims to conduct the scientific accompaniment and support of the further operationalisation of the expert information network for environmental surveys of the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency, MARLIN-Marine Life Investigator, in connection with the legally protected good „harbour porpoise“. The focus of three work packages (FP1-3) is on quality assurance of data from environmental impact studies (FP1), evaluations from the expert information network MARLIN (FP2) as well as knowledge generation and transfer as part of the first operational utilisation of MARLIN (FP3).

 

FP1, scientific development of criteria for the quality assurance of data from environmental impact studies:

The first research package aims to establish a consistent quality level of the different data sources in order to be able to conduct analyses within the scope of case studies. Environmental impact study data entering the expert information network MARLIN shall be verified automatically by developing system check routine surveyed and refined by the ITAW.

 

FP2, scientific development of criteria for the analysis of data gained by different acquisition methods of the environmental impact studies:

The impact of offshore wind farms on the marine environment is investigated since 2002 in the context of the standard investigation concept of the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency. Different methods were applied during the assessment of the legally protected good „harbour porpoise“ in the environmental impact studies: ship-based and airplane-based (observer and digital flight surveys) assessments. In FP2, scientific analysis criteria shall be developed via data from these different methods and subsequently elements for new requirements using research tools.

 

FP3, evaluation of standard investigation concept and case study about validation of quality controlled data:

In FP3, a scientific validation of the current extent of investigation, methods and the design following StUK4 shall be conducted with regard to the harbour porpoise.  

Furthermore, the quality controlled data from FP1 and FP2 are supposed to be linked user friendly with further geodata in a case study.
