Scientific and Technical Publications

To meet the demand for rapid dissemination of information many reports are now available on the web. Links below will take you to full text reports PDF format.

Copies of reports are available from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management free of charge, as long as supplies last by contacting the Alaska Region at akwebmaster@boem.gov. Once the supply is exhausted, copies can be purchased from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) at www.ntis.gov, or borrowed through an Interlibrary Loan from the Alaska Resources Library & Information Services (ARLIS) or reviewed at participating Federal Depository libraries.
