RWSC convenes all four Sectors (federal agencies, states, offshore wind companies, eNGOs) on deployment, data management, and analysis of long-term/archival PAM. The RWSC Marine Mammal Subcommittee leads this work.
The RWSC Marine Mammal Subcommittee has developed and maintains maps showing the components of a proposed Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) design for regional long-term monitoring in Atlantic offshore lease areas and wind energy areas.
Click on the map to learn more about locations where PAM devices are currently located. A PAM device may be deployed anywhere within the highlighted grid cell. The Subcommittee also maintains detailed offline maps and a list of coordinates that are available to practitioners upon request (contact Debbie Brill, Marine Mammal Subcommittee Coordinator).
