Expert Elicitations for the CARMMHA Project: Estimating How the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Affected Marine Mammals

Last week our own Cormac Booth led two expert elicitation workshops at the National Marine Mammal Foundation in San Diego, as part of the CARMMHA project.  The workshops were a great success, providing a number of outputs for updating the population models.
