The Coastal Marine Institute
The University of Alaska Coastal Marine Institute (CMI) was created by a cooperative agreement between the University of Alaska and the U. S. Department of the Interior BOEM Alaska Region to study coastal topics associated with the development of natural gas, oil, and minerals in Alaska's outer continental shelf (OCS). Under this cooperative program, BOEM taps the highly qualified scientific expertise at the University of Alaska to:
1. Collect and disseminate environmental information needed for OCS oil, gas, and marine minerals decisions.
2. Address local and regional OCS-related environmental and resource issues of mutual interest.
3. Strengthen the partnership between BOEM and the states by addressing OCS oil and gas and marine minerals information needs.
Many of the CMI funded projects address a combination of issues related to fisheries, biomonitoring, physical oceanography, and the fates of oil.
