Report of a Workshop on Best Approaches and Needs for Projecting Marine Mammal Distributions in a Changing Climate, Santa Cruz, California, USA, 12-14 January 2016

Short Description
NOAA Technical Memorandum NMFS-OPR-54
Published Date: 2016
Resource Type


The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and Marine Mammal Commission (MMC) convened a workshop in January 2016 to determine to what extent it is plausible to project climate-related changes in marine mammal distribution and relative abundance based on existing modeling practices and the current state of marine mammal science, and to identify the methodologies available and their limitations.
