BOEM Announces Environmental Study Reports Posted During the Third Quarter FY 2016
BOEM's Environmental Studies Program (ESP) announced the availability of new findings from eight studies posted online to the Environmental Studies Program Information System (ESPIS) from April-June 2016. Two relate to the Renewable Energy Program, five are from the Gulf of Mexico, and one is from Alaska. The latest group covers physical and biological oceanography and socio-economic studies. The reports and associated technical summaries can be accessed through the enhanced ESPIS, which displays reports with geo-referencing tools, animation and other new features. BOEM migrated more than 40 years of ESPIS content to the MarineCadastre.gov platform in July 2015.
