Ocean Science

Ocean Science is the science and technology journal of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM).  The bureau funds on average $30 million per year for scientific studies in the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic, the Pacific, and the Arctic.  Data gained from these studies inform policy decisions regarding offshore oil, natural gas and renewable energy development.  The information is also used by other federal and state agencies in decision-making and by members of academia and experts in the private sector.  BOEM is one of the leading contributors to the body of scientific knowledge about the nation’s marine and coastal environments.
