North Aleutian Basin Monitoring in Drilling Area (NABMIDA): Nearshore Benthic Biota Habitat Baseline & Community Based Long- Term Monitoring (AK-10-08)

This study will address key environmental assessments of the North Aleutian Basin (NAB) needed for Lease Sale 214 (proposed for 2011) in response to local stakeholder input and public comment during scoping meetings. The results will contribute information useful for developing ongoing monitoring of hydrocarbons to reduce potential impacts from proposed oil and gas exploration and development on nearshore benthic environments. The information from this study will be used for NEPA analysis and documentation for the NAB prior to gas exploration and development in that region.
