Microfossil Assemblage Analysis in Support of the Mississippi Offshore Sediment Resources Inventory

This information will help provide Gulf Coast restoration planners with information on available building material for coastal restoration projects, indirectly providing benefits to infrastructure systems, housing, economic development, community planning and capacity building.

Additionally, the


identification of these sands provides an inventory of resources that will be beneficial for future coastal planning efforts which ultimately promotes long-term sustainability for both communities and ecosystems.

Other federal agencies, the State of Mississippi, local governments and local communities will benefit from the outcome of this project through improved consultations and project planning for locally and federally funded coastal restoration projects.

This project will enable BOEM to help the state and localities by providing financial assistance to researchers who will produce scientific information for use by state and local resource managers.
