Download as PDF 27867 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 116 / Monday, June 19, 2017 / Notices • Number of otters present in and number of otters harvested from pod; • Condition of the polar bear and whether or not bear cubs were present; and • Name of the hunter or possessor of the specified parts at the time of marking, tagging, and reporting. We use FWS Form 3–2406 (Registration of Certain Dead Marine Mammal Hard Parts) to record the collection of bones, teeth, or ivory of dead marine mammals by non-Native and Natives not eligible to harvest marine mammals under the MMPA. It is legal to collect such parts from a beach or from land within a quarter of a mile of the ocean (50 CFR 18.26). The information we collect via Form 3–2406 includes, but is not limited to: • Date and location found. • Age, sex, and size of the animal. • Tag numbers. • Name, address, phone number, and birthdate of the collector.

III. Comments On February 24, 2017, we published in the Federal Register (82 FR 11598) a notice of our intent to request that OMB approve this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on April 25, 2017. We received one comment in response to that notice: Email comment dated April 24, 2017 from Marine Mammal Commission. The Marine Mammal Commission supports the continuation of the information collection programs related to the taking of marine mammals for subsistence and handicraft purposes by Alaska Natives. Collection of this information is authorized under section 109(i) of the Marine Mammal Protection Act. This information is important for tracking Native use of marine mammals and to provide the documentation that marine mammal parts were legally taken. The Commission also supports the continued use of FWS Form 3–2406 for registering marine mammal hard parts found on beaches and near shore areas. Under applicable regulations, these parts can be retained only if they are registered with the FWS (or NMFS). As such, retention of the registration form is necessary. FWS Response: None required. IV. Request for and Availability of Public Comments We again invite comments concerning this information collection on: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:09 Jun 16, 2017 Jkt 241001 • Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; • The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection of information; • Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The USGS Land Remote Sensing (LRS) Program is currently planning 
for the next generation of Landsat satellites. These satellites will 
continue the multi-decadal continuous collection of moderate-
resolution, multispectral, remotely-sensed imagery through the Landsat 
program. Landsat satellite imagery has been available at no cost to the 
public since 2008, which has resulted in the distribution of millions 
of scenes each subsequent year, as well as tens of thousands of Landsat 
users registering with USGS to access the data. In order to continue to 
provide high quality imagery that meets the needs of users, LRS is 
collecting current and future user requirements for sensor and 
satellite attributes. These attributes include spatial resolution, 
spectral bands, frequency of acquisition, and many others. LRS will use 
the information from this collection to understand if they are 
currently meeting the needs of their user community and to help 
determine the features of future Landsat satellites. Questions will be 
asked to determine user characteristics, current uses of imagery, 
preferred attributes of Landsat imagery, and benefits of Landsat 
imagery. All current Landsat imagery users who are registered with USGS 
will be invited to take part in the survey.
    To protect the confidentiality and privacy of survey respondents, 
the data from the survey will not be associated with any respondent's 
email address at any time and will only be analyzed and reported in 
aggregate. All files containing PII will be password-protected, housed 
on secure USGS servers, and only accessible to the research team. The 
data from the survey will be aggregated and statistically analyzed and 
the results will be published in publically available USGS reports.
