"This Record of Decision (ROD) documents the Department of the Interior's decision to approve rights-of-way and permits to drill on public lands in response to an application by ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc. (CPAI). These authorizations will be issued by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) following completion of the state's coastal zone consistency review and receipt of a certification to that effect from CPAI. The authorizations will allow development of federal oil leases on BLM-managed land in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska. These authorizations will adopt the Preferred Alternative, with minor modifications (see Appendix A), in the Alpine Satellite Development Plan (ASDP) Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS)."--Summary.

Introduction and project objectives
Ice boom applicability for oil spill cleanup
Ice loads on the boom
Ice boom configurations and design considerations
Required ship performance
This report provides the results of a study to assess the applicability of ice boom technology to aid or extend oil spill cleanup capabilities in broken ice. The technology has been developed and used successfully at several locations to control the ice. For oil spill cleanup in broken ice, booms have the potential in a number of ways, such as: (a) preventing ice ingress into the spill area, thereby providing an ice-free area where conventional oil spill equipment can operate; and, (b) providing a means to assist in separating the oil from the ice.

Oil exploration and increased shipping traffic in Arctic waters significantly elevate the risk of oil spills. The Arctic Tracer Release Experiment (ARCTREX) was designed to test the ability of available observational technology to sample a simulated oil spill in the Chukchi Sea and to transmit data to a shore-based, online emergency management application.

This is an inventory of greenhouse gases generated by the City of San Mateo in its operations and facilities and by the community at large. Greenhouse gases (GHG) trap heat in the atmosphere and cause that planet to warm. This report addresses the sources of GHG being generated locally, primarily carbon dioxide (CO2).

This report was prepared in order to summarize the City of San Mateo’s greenhouse gas emissions and the actions being taken to mitigate those emissions. The emissions reduction program developed by the City was designed to meet the requirements of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s Draft CEQA Guidelines and the corresponding criteria for a Qualified Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Program as defined by the district. A Qualified Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Program adopted by a local jurisdiction should include the following elements as described in the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15183.5. The district’s revised CEQA Guidelines provide the methodology to determine if a greenhouse gas reduction program meets these requirements.

"This final report provides a review and synthesis of available scientific information concerning the relationship between hydraulic fracturing activities and drinking water resources in the United States. The report is organized around activities in the hydraulic fracturing water cycle and their potential to impact drinking water resources. The stages include: (1) acquiring water to be used for hydraulic fracturing (Water Acquisition), (2) mixing the water with chemical additives to prepare hydraulic fracturing fluids (Chemical Mixing), (3) injecting the hydraulic fracturing fluids into the production well to create fractures in the targeted production zone (Well Injection), (4) collecting the wastewater that returns through the well after injection (Produced Water Handling), and (5) managing the wastewater via disposal or reuse methods (Wastewater Disposal and Reuse). EPA found scientific evidence that hydraulic fracturing activities can impact drinking water resources under some circumstances. The report identifies certain conditions under which impacts from hydraulic fracturing activities can be more frequent or severe."
