A report by the Physical Oceanography Panel of the National Research Council of the United States into the physical oceanographic aspects of the Environmental Studies Program. The Committee evaluated the quality and relevance of studies carried out in waters under federal control which extend from the limits of state jurisdictions (3-12 miles offshore) and include the central and outer continental shelf waters and the continental slope of the United States.

Moratoria provisions for the outer continental shelf, enacted over 26 years, prohibited federal spending on oil and gas development in certain locations and for certain activities. These annual congressional moratoria expired on Sept. 30, 2008. While the expiration of the legislative restrictions does not make leasing and drilling permissible in all offshore areas, it is a significant development in conjunction with other changes in offshore leasing activity. Contents of this report: (1) Recent Developments; (2) Economic Feasibility; Environmental Risk; Improvements in Offshore Technology; (3)

The favorable geological setting for vast accumulations of oil and gas in Alaska's coastal and offshore areas has attracted the attention of hydrocarbon resource explorers for several decades. Counterbalancing the great resource potential is a harsh physical environment and considerable concern about the impacts of exploration and development on the living resources, landscape, and livelihood and culture of the Native American population.
