BOEM 101: The Environmental Science Behind the Decision with Dr. Rodney Cluck
Dive into the science used to make decisions at BOEM!
On this episode, hosts Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham talk to Dr. Rodney Cluck, Chief of the Division of Environmental Sciences at the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). BOEM has long played an important role on the American Shoreline, governing the leasing of offshore oil and gas drilling sites and the overseeing offshore sand resources. However, over the past two years there has been a sea change in offshore wind, and BOEM now finds itself right in the middle of the boom. Rodney talks about the overall mission and purpose of BOEM and then discusses the important role that science continues to play in how the Bureau is approaching the rapid development of offshore wind, and what that might mean for the future of ocean economy.
