AWEA submits these comments in response to the request for input on how to improve the efficiency of the permitting process for ocean research, mapping, and characterization activities. It is our hope that these comments will inform the Ocean Policy Committee as it works with Federal agencies and other stakeholders to increase the efficiency of the permitting and authorization processes for ocean mapping and characterization activities across agencies, especially with respect to the geophysical and geotechnical surveys conducted by our members in support of offshore wind development in the Outer Continental Shelf.
