Trophic Links: Forage Fish, Their Prey, and Ice Seals in the Northeast Chukchi Sea (AK-08-12-05)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - This study will provide BOEM NEPA analysts with sorely needed basic diet information for both fish and seals in the Chukchi Sea. Because of the close association of the three trophic levels, it will greatly increase understanding of the ecological connections between invertebrates, fish, and seals and also provide measures of natural variability across a series of years that include both warm...

Oil in Ice: Transport, Fate, and Potential Exposure

University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) - Oil spilled in the arctic marine environment can be rapidly frozen into the ice sheet. The oil will in this way be to some extent preserved, in the sense that evaporation, dissolution, and degradation are expected to be greatly reduced. This implies that the oil will retain much of its potential acute toxicity upon release from the ice, either via transport in brine channels and/or eventual...

Evaluation of the Use of Hindcast Model Data for OSRA in a Period of Rapidly Changing Conditions (AK-10-07)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The pace at which conditions are changing and sea ice is being lost in the Arctic raises several questions, including: How might the ocean circulation be changing? Do the hindcasts continue to adequately represent current patterns in the region? Does BOEM need to incorporate a 20-40 year forecast-modeling mode? Oceanic current patterns in the Arctic, especially in nearshore regions, are...

Comprehensive Modeling Approach Towards Understanding and Prediction of the Alaskan Coastal System Response to Changes in an Ice diminished Arctic

The proposed research combines state-of-the-art regional modeling of sea ice, ocean, atmosphere and ecosystem to provide a system approach to advance the knowledge and predictive capability of the diverse impacts of changing sea ice cover on the bio-physical marine environment of coastal Alaska and over the larger region of the western Arctic Ocean. The focus of this project on seasonally...

Updates to the Fault Tree Approach to Oil-Spill Occurrence Estimators for the Chukchi and Beaufort Sea Planning Areas (AK-05-x12)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The OCS spill occurrence rates used in MMS NEPA analyses are based on historical platform and pipeline crude oil-spill rates, almost entirely from the Gulf of Mexico OCS. For the Alaska OCS Region Arctic planning areas, the MMS has recently incorporated a fault-tree approach which incorporates 1) differences in oil-spill occurrence factors between the Arctic and Gulf of Mexico OCS and 2)...
