Jennifer Amaral is studying towards her PhD in Ocean Engineering at the University of Rhode Island. Her doctoral research focuses on the characterization of pile driving sounds during the construction of offshore wind turbines. Jennifer holds a B.S. and M.S. in Ocean Engineering from URI. She is a lead scientist and engineer with Marine Acoustics, Inc. in Middletown, Rhode Island where she implements modeling strategies and develops acoustic assessment tools to evaluate sound exposure on marine life for environmental impact assessments.
- Characterization of Impact Pile Driving Signals During Installation of Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations - This study analyzed measurements of piles used during the construction of offshore wind farms to investigate variations in rise time, decay time, pulse duration, kurtosis, and sound received levels as a function of range and azimuth.
- The Underwater Sound from Offshore Wind Farms - This study investigates and summarizes the underwater sounds that are associated with offshore wind farms during both the construction and operation phases.
- One URI Doctoral Student Who Is Making Strides in Offshore Wind Research - For Jennifer Amaral, a University of Rhode Island ocean engineering doctoral student, offshore renewable energy represents an exciting area of ocean study “Offshore wind farms have been quite common in other countries for a long time, and it’s exciting that the United States is adopting more offshore energy options now.”
