Administration, F. A. (n.d.). Appendix B : Marine Mammals Strike Probability Assessment. Retrieved from

Excerpt: An approach was used to determine the expected number of marine animals that could be struck by the separation and jettison or drop of various spent stages and payload fairings from commercial launches in the U.S. For this approach, the data were based on the projected 1998 commercial launch rate, because it was the highest annual launch rate. Assumptions Various assumptions were applied to the 1998 launch rate data to estimate the number of items jettisoned/dropped that could potentially hit marine animals. The highest launch rate occurs during 1998 with a total of 50 launches. Each number of the total is a worst case for the payload capacity size (e.g., a Delta II is used as an example of an intermediate rocket, because more parts are jettisoned than an Atlas). Conservative total launch numbers have been developed for each of the four payload capacity types.
