Current Marine Minerals Statistics

The new easy-to-navigate dashboard shows information on a local, state and national level, including sand volume leased, lease and nourishment sites, miles of coastline restored, and the number of projects. It reflects the latest information stored in the database.

BOEM created the MMIS dashboard to help coastal communities, government officials, coastal engineers and planners, academics, and those involved in national defense, telecommunications, offshore energy or fisheries anticipate and plan for coastal restoration while being responsible ocean stewards.

The projects pursued over the years have resulted in the restoration of hundreds of miles of the Nation's coastline, protecting billions of dollars of infrastructure, as well as important ecological habitat. See our MMIS fact sheet for more information.

Please see the complete MMIS Application for data access and information on data use constraints.
