ORJIP for Offshore Wind: Integration of tracking and at-sea survey data (InTaS)

Calling for entries from companies and consortia interested in integrating GPS tracking data collected on breeding birds with at-sea survey data to enable accurate estimation of the proportion of breeding birds within at-sea surveys, with proper quantification of uncertainty.

The project has four main activities:

  1. Integrate modelling of tracking data and at-sea survey data, allowing the distributions of breeding and non-breeding birds to be mapped. 
  2. Use densities of seabirds derived from at-sea data to apportion populations to breeding colonies (accounting for non-breeding birds), along with proper quantification of uncertainty.
  3. Provide recommendations on how the resulting maps can be incorporated into apportioning tools (and hence into assessments of displacement and collision effects) and spatial mapping tools.
  4. Define and develop a data integration framework that can be adapted to incorporate more wide-ranging data types.

The deadline for clarification questions has passed.

The closing date to receive tender submissions has been extended to 13 June 2022, 12:00 BST (previously 31 May 2022, 12:00 BST).

All clarification questions and tender submissions should be sent electronically, by their respective deadlines, to oliver.patrick@carbontrust.com and ivan.savitsky@carbontrust.com
