BOEM Launches the Environmental Studies Program Hub

Release Date

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) today announced the availability of its Environmental Studies Program (ESP) Hub, a new online platform that will improve public access to BOEM’s collection of ocean science research.  

The ESP Hub replaces the previous geoESPIS search tool, ushering in a new paradigm for scientific information discovery. To make this transition happen, BOEM gathered user requirements, rebuilt the database, and redesigned the public-facing application. Its intuitive user interface and well-organized theme pages will significantly improve accessibility to ESP studies. 

Stakeholders with specific information needs, such as program analysts and government scientists, can continue to search and view BOEM ESP reports through the GovInfo Search Tool, hosted by the Government Publishing Office. 

BOEM will host a webinar to provide a demonstration of the ESP Hub and answer questions on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, at 1 pm Eastern. To register, click here: ESP Tutorial Webinar
