Environmental Sensitivity Index Area

The Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) map for the Gulf Coast has been developed by NOAA’s Office of Response and Restoration. The purpose of the ESI is to identify sensitive resources that may be impacted as a result of an oil spill. NOAA has defined three types of sensitive resources: shoreline habitats, biological resources, and human use resources (including cultural resources).

The Index map is an aggregation of 1:24000 USGS quadrangle boundaries covering areas within which these resource types are at risk. The National Park Service has used the ESI in conducting its own assessment of the potential impact of the Deep Horizon BP Oil Spill because the ESI Area map comes from an authoritative source (NOAA), it provides a consistent geographic framework for agencies to use in responding to the incident, and it allows a reasonable area to take into account the potential impacts of recovery e.g. staging areas, clean up infrastructure, access roads etc. on cultural resources.
