2018 - Initial stages of acoustic tracking of migratory american eels over an HVDC power cable 

The study of free ranging migratory eels is taking place in Long Island Sound this Fall. Next year we will undertake 3-D tracking of eels within enclosures either on or off the electricity cable to test for direct responses to anthropogenic EMF. Collaborative research project with University of Rhode Island, Swedish Defence Agency. Funded by US Federal Agency BOEM 2018-2020. 

2018 - Report released on EMF impacts on migratory and mobile animals

The report documents the novel findings from a two-year, collaborative, multi-disciplinary project led by The University of Rhode Island (with Andrew Gill acting as co-PI) and contracted by the USA Federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) entitled "Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Impacts on Elasmobranch (sharks, rays, and skates) and American Lobster Movement and Migration from Direct Current Cables."
