  • Description:
    "This Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA) analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with the National Ocean Service, Office of Coast Survey program of conducting hydrographic surveys and related activities in the marine environment. Hydrographic survey projects support Coast Survey's mandated mission to provide reliable nautical charts and other products necessary for safe navigation, economic security, and environmental sustainability in U.S. ocean and coastal waters. Coast Survey's proposed action would be to continue surveying approximately 3,000 square nautical miles of coastal waters each year. In order to conduct these surveys, Coast Survey would engage in a combination of some or all of the following field activities: use of high frequency echosounders mounted on or towed behind vessels traveling at a slow speed, use of aircraft-mounted lasers during light detection and ranging (lidar) surveys, vessel transits to and from survey areas, anchoring, sound speed data collection, bottom sample collection, tide gauge installation on land, and testing of survey products in development, such as autonomous underwater vehicles"--Executive Summary (page 8).
