Background information and definitions
Automated detection systems, e.g. using sonar or acoustic monitoring, may be used at renewable energy sites to detect the presence of marine or freshwater mammals and allow operations to be stopped or modified. This may reduce the risk of mammal injury or death caused by collisions with moving structures, such as underwater turbines.
