Assessing Sand Resources on the South-Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf (OCS)

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) through the Marine Minerals Program (MMP) is offering a cooperative agreement opportunity to conduct research to serve the public interest in offshore sand resources, coastal restoration, coastal resiliency, and to further the MMP goal of developing a national


Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) sand resource inventory.

The overall goal of this study is to coordinate and implement sand, resource identification, delineation and management practices for the south-Atlantic region.

This study will develop volume estimates of OCS sediment resources.

Data collection and analysis in support of this goal promotes preservation of biological, cultural, and economic resources by rebuilding coastlines to safeguard the Nation's assets and delineates OCS mineral resources to inform long term planning and ensure protection from activities that might otherwise permanently obstruct access to the resource.

This funding is available to East Coast state entities in the south-Atlantic Region, including:
North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.

All awards are premised on receipt of an acceptable proposal.
