MMS Supports Workshop on Effects of Wave Energy

Wednesday, October 10, 2007
Scientists from the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Minerals Management Service (MMS) will join colleagues from federal and state government, academia, and industry to examine potential effects of wave energy at the Ecological Effects of Wave Energy Development in the Pacific Northwest Workshop at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, Oregon, on October 11-12, 2007. MMS is a major co-sponsor of the scientific workshop along with Oregon State University, the Oregon Department of Land Development and Conservation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration-Fisheries, Communication Partnership for Science and the Sea, the Oregon Wave Energy Trust, several Pacific Northwest utility companies and others. MMS will also give a presentation on assessing potential impacts of wave energy development on the environment. Other topics to be explored during the workshop include physical effects (waves, currents and sediment transport), effects on fish, habitat effects, effects of ocean bottom disturbance, and effects on marine mammals and seabirds. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 gives MMS the authority to regulate alternative energy projects on the Outer Continental Shelf. Alternative energy includes wind, wave, ocean current, and solar.
