The Radar and Acoustics Working Group of the Midwest Migration Network seeks to conduct and facilitate research on migratory animals in order to inform their conservation and management.

Two broad MMN priority research questions can be addressed through the use of radar and acoustic monitoring techniques: 

  1. Which habitat, sites, and airspace are the highest priorities for conservation action?
  2. When do landbirds migrate and how does this vary annually and under different climate change scenarios?
