The Environmental Studies Program (ESP) announces the availability of three study reports that were posted online to the Environmental Studies Program Information System (ESPIS) from October-December 2015. The new postings relay findings from regional studies for Alaska. The reports and associated technical summaries can be accessed through the enhanced ESPIS, which displays reports with new geo-referencing tools, animation and other new features.

All three projects were conducted through cooperative agreements between BOEM and the Coastal Marine Institute of the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Topics covered include:

BOEM’s Environmental Studies Program (ESP) develops, funds, and manages rigorous scientific research to inform policy decisions regarding the development of energy and mineral resources on the OCS.

The Environmental Studies Program Information System (ESPIS) makes all completed ESP reports available on-line as full electronic pdf documents, including images and graphics. Technical summaries of more than 1,700 BOEM-sponsored environmental research projects, as well as full pdf documents of over 3,400 research reports, are available for online full text search.
