Senior Ecologist, DHI
BiographyHenrik Skov has more than 29 years’ experience in application of field and analytical methods for studying marine habitats and movements of birds, and for assessing the ecological impacts of human activities at sea. He has been responsible for a number of research, impact assessment and monitoring projects, including studies related to marine wind farms like the latest studies on bird migration undertaken in relation to the Danish offshore wind farms. Method development includes multi-sensor bird detection systems, dynamic habitat modelling, GIS-based decision support systems i.r.t. assessment of marine habitats and sensitivity mapping. He has functioned as the technical lead for the Offshore Wind, Offshore Renewables Joint Industry Programme (ORJIP) on bird avoidance behaviour and collision impact monitoring at offshore wind farms coordinated by the Carbon Trust (United Kingdom).
