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...

Modeling of Circulation in the North Aleutian Basin (AK-07-x14)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - Oil-spill trajectory analysis for impact assessment is needed for the North Aleutian Basin Planning Area (NAB). The Department of Interior’s Final OCS Oil and Gas Leasing Program 2007-2012 considers a NAB oil and gas lease sale for 2011. Oil-Spill-Risk Analysis (OSRA) is a cornerstone for evaluating alternatives in OCS oil and gas leasing, EIS preparation and for evaluating mitigation, such as...

Mapping and Characterization of Recurring Polynyas and Landfast Ice in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas (AK-09-04)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - Because the predominant oil-spill movement in the Chukchi OCS Planning Area would be from east to west, the potential interaction of oil and wildlife in the polynya system is a major concern. A better understanding of locations and characteristics of the polynyas and landfast ice would allow for a more accurate estimate of oilspill trajectories. In addition, this information is useful for...
