Type of Entry: Project
Website: http://www.minos-info.org
Duration: 01/2002 - 03/2004

The MINOS project examines whether large scale offshore wind farms within the German parts of North and Baltic Seas affect or endanger harbour porpoises, common seals and sea birds. The research results are expected to provide the knowledge for estimating and assessing the impacts of future wind farms.
