NEWSWAVE is an award-winning quarterly newsletter from the Department of the Interior featuring ocean, Great Lakes and coastal activities across the Bureaus. NEWSWAVE reports on important news and accomplishments for our ocean and coastal resources. In each issue we share new Interior initiatives, exciting science discoveries, policy updates, relevant events and valuable contact information. Special features highlight unique programs, capabilities or resources from the Arctic Ocean to the Remote Pacific Islands. The Surfing Bison feature highlights Interior web pages that will help you find more in-depth information on a wide range of ocean, Great Lakes and coastal topics.
