Real-time Opportunity for Development Environmental Observations (RODEO) (2015)
BOEM is responsible for the approval of a construction and operations plan submitted by developers for wind facilities on the Outer Continental Shelf. The approval process includes the analysis of the environmental effects from the construction, operation, and decommissioning of these facilities. Real-time measurements of the construction and operation of the first facilities to be built will allow for more accurate assessments of the actual environmental effects. Without real time observations of the activities, best estimates based on perceived activities are used to make these determinations.
