PAST PROGRAM MANAGER REPORTS


 

The Coastal Marine Institute (CMI) was initiated in July 1994 as a cooperative research and research training program involving the Minerals Management Service, the State of California and the University of California. The focus is on long-term environmental, social and economic consequences of oil and gas production activities in the Pacific Outer Continental Shelf region.  These Annual Reports summarize activities and research progress during Program Years 1-10 (July 1, 1994 - June 30, 2004).
