Title: PWS Human Use and Wildlife Disturbance Model
Project Year and Number: 1998: 98339
Principal Investigator (PI): Karen Murphy, US Fish & Wildlife Service
Research Location: Western Prince William Sound
Restoration Category: Research
Abstract: This project will use geographic information system (GIS) techniques to describe current human-use patterns in western Prince William Sound and to model potential changes in those use patterns as a result of additional development (e.g., increased access). GIS-generated maps of present and projected human-use patterns will be incorporated with GIS maps of the distribution of resources injured as a result of the oil spill. This will provide a basis to identify areas where there may be existing and potential conflicts between human use and wildlife concentrations resulting in disturbance. Disturbance of injured wildlife may result in decreased productivity exacerbating the effects of the oil spill and prolonging the time to recover.
