dc.description.abstract The Minerals Management Service (MMS) is the Federal agency under the U.S. Department of the Interior that regulates offshore mineral resources (primarily oil and gas production) and alternative energy facilities on the Outer Continental Shelf. The MMS Seafloor Monitoring Team consists of a pool of scientific divers (archaeologists, biologists, and geologists) who support the Environmental Studies Program and have participated in hundreds of research projects since the agency's formation in 1982. This paper highlights two recent research projects in which MMS divers have participated. The first involved participation in a project to capture tagged sea otters off Bering Island, Russia; the second is the discovery of a U.S. Navy gunboat off the coast of Louisiana. en_US
