BOEM seeking environmental study ideas

Alan Bailey

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management is seeking study ideas for inclusion in the agency’s environmental studies program in fiscal year 2019. The agency says that it is starting to formulate its 2019 environmental studies development plan and is looking for ideas relevant to BOEM’s information requirements relating to biological, oceanographic and social sciences, including economic and cultural research.

The bureau oversees energy and mineral exploration and development on the U.S. outer continental shelf and uses environmental, cultural and other data to assess the impacts of planned activities on the environment and communities.

Study ideas may apply to any of the major OCS regions: Alaska, the Atlantic, the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific.

BOEM requires suggestions for studies in short paragraph form by Feb. 5. Information about how to submit suggestions is available on the BOEM website at www.boem.gov/inviting-study-ideas-for-FY-2019.
