Oceanographic Studies

Linking physical oceanographic variables with whale distribution is the latest technique the Centre is using to guide industry and government in regards to developing deep water areas never previously examined for cetaceans.

Industry leaders INPEX, Woodside Energy and Shell have help fund the Centre’s ambitious plans to begin mapping the deep off-shore waters of Western Australia’s continental slope so that cetacean distribution, and environmental conditions that may favour cetaceans, can be factored into decision making processes well in advance of any potentially disruptive developement activities taking place.
