In this project, agent- or individual-based models will be developed to simulate potential outcomes of these changes for walruses, bearded seals and ringed seals. This project will produce a toolbox to simulate the development of Arctic seal populations as the sea-ice retreats. Ultimately, the toolbox will be a valuable asset to simulate new scenarios to assess the impact of human activities on seals in the Arctic environment.
