This issue includes articles from BOEM scientists describing coastal restoration projects and environmental and non-energy mineral resource studies.

It also includes a piece on a major new initiative to develop a National Offshore Sand Inventory that will help reduce response time after major storms by providing coastal communities valuable information when they need it and to help plan for the future.
