COMIDA: Passive Acoustic Detection and Monitoring of Endangered Whales in the Arctic (Beaufort, Chukchi) (AK-09-02a)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - Information from this study will document the general presence of bowhead, right, fin, gray, and other baleen whales in areas of potential seismic, drilling, construction, and production activities. Study results may be useful for estimating temporal limits and formulating designs of mitigation for such activities. Findings may be used for evaluating potential deferral areas and other potential...

Migration and Habitat Use by Threatened Spectacled Eiders in the Eastern Chukchi Near and Offshore Environment (AK-09-03)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - Research focusing on the distribution and timing of habitat use by the threatened (ESA) Spectacled Eiders was identified as an information need at the COMIDA workshop held on Nov. 1-3, 2006. Lease sales are planned for the Chukchi Sea Planning Area in 2010 and 2012. This information will be used for ESA Section 7 consultations, NEPA analyses, Exploration Plans, DPPs and other documentation. The...

Distribution, Abundance, and Habitat Use of North Pacific Right Whales (AK-07-x13)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The eastern population of the North Pacific right whale (Eubalaena japonica) is arguably the rarest stock of whales anywhere in the world. Right whales throughout the North Pacific were drastically reduced by commercial whaling beginning in 1835, and the remnant eastern population was almost wiped out by illegal Soviet catches in the 1960's. Today, the surviving population likely numbers...

Monitoring Marine Birds of Concern in the Eastern Chukchi Nearshore Area (Loons) (AK-07-04a)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The initial BOEM environmental impact analysis for the 5 Year Program, 2007-2012, identifies species of concern in the Chukchi Sea. Recommendations to BOEM (Section 7 Consultation, Beaufort Sale 186) included research on migratory species of concern. Thus, updated information on marine bird distribution, species composition, molting, staging and timing of use in the eastern Chukchi coastal...

Arctic Fish Ecology Catalogue (AK-07)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The BOEM needs organized fish ecology and rare species. Study products will be used in post-sale NEPA analysis, review of EPs, DPPs and other reviews for post-sale and post-exploration BOEM decision making and mitigation. Also, study results will be used in similar pre-lease analyses and documentation for potential future Chukchi Sea Lease Sales.
