Environmental Fates and Effects: Studies to evaluate the effects in the marine environment on fish, marine mammals, and sea turtles.
Environmental Monitoring: Studies to develop protocols and assess impacts through direct measurement or modeling.
Information Synthesis and Gap Analysis: Studies to gather existing information about human and ecological communities and physical oceanographic processes that affect shelf ecosystems and potentially sensitive areas.
Marine Mammals and Other Protected Species: Studies to assess the distribution of marine mammals and other protected species.
Physical Environment: Studies to evaluate or support the evaluation of the physical environment including the local geology, currents, and wind resources.
Social, Economic and Cultural Resources: Studies to identify human use of coastal and offshore waters and potential conflicts, economic effects, and cultural resources.
