The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management‘s (BOEM) Environmental Studies Program (ESP) develops, funds and manages research on marine, coastal, and human environments to collect information needed for assessment and management of potential impacts from energy and marine mineral development on the Federal Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). Since the ESP’s launch in 1973, it has funded more than $1.1 billion of research nationwide, approaching $500 million dedicated to research in coastal Alaska, and has produced more than 1,000 study reports and peer-reviewed publications. These studies have provided information for use in 25 different lease sales, which have generated nearly $9.5 billion for the U.S. Treasury.

Research within the Alaska OCS Region, which covers more than 1 billion acres, is multidisciplinary, encompassing oceanography, marine mammals, biology, and social sciences.  The research is mission-oriented, focusing on providing information for environmental impact assessment and monitoring environmental changes associated with OCS activities.  The ESP in Alaska currently manages more than 55 ongoing study projects in disciplines including protected and endangered species; physical oceanography; fate and effects of pollutants; wildlife biology; subsistence, and traditional knowledge studies; and economic forecasting.
