Management, Logistics, and Warehouse Storage of Oceanographic Equipment (AK-10-04)
Without funding of this program-support element, it would not be possible to maintain or deploy the 36-foot BOEM Launch 1273 that provides a mobile, cost-effective, and specialized research vessel for a variety of biological and oceanographic studies throughout the coastal waters of Alaska. Costs for certain studies would increase significantly if more expensive marine-support alternatives were chartered. Additionally, it would not be possible to maintain an equipment warehouse that allows us to reuse and share equipment effectively among projects and agencies. This is a critical program support element related to studies that support all current leases.
