SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Research Assessing Current and Potential Impacts of Cruise Ships on Visitor Experiences in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. Bureau Form Number(s): None. OMB Number: To be requested. Expiration Date: To be requested. Type of Request: New collection. Description of Need: The proposed study would provide information to be used in deciding cruise ship use levels in Glacier Bay National Park. The purpose of this research is to provide Park managers with information about current impacts of cruise ships, if any, on the quality of visitor experience and to estimate potential impacts on the quality of visitor experience for cruise ship use levels specified in the Record of Decision (Record of Decision for Vessel Quotas and Operating Requirements in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, 2003). The Final Environmental Impact Statement for Vessel Quotas and Operating Requirements, and the resulting Record of Decision signed November 21, 2003, currently guide vessel management in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve (GLBA). The Record of Decision (Record of Decision for Vessel Quotas and Operating Requirements in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, 2003) adopted an alternative that maintains the current daily maximum of two cruise ships in the park and sets seasonal use days for the June–August season at 139 ships. The Record of Decision also provides for possible increases in cruise ship use. Specifically, use in the June–August FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUMMARY: The following corrections are made: Three scoping meetings (West Jordan, Tooele, and Nephi, Utah) will be held during the scoping period.

PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62489 season could be increased to two ships per day, every day for a seasonal use total of 184 ships. The Record of Decision for Vessel Quotas and Operating Requirements in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve (2003) provided the following direction for the role of research in the process of changing quotas for cruise ships. The determination of whether to increase seasonal-use day quotas for cruise ships will rely on criteria that define the environmental and social conditions to be met before any additional seasonal-use days are approved. These criteria will be based on the results of and guidance provided through studies that examine the effects of vessels on all park resources and visitor experience. (p.18). The Record of Decision also specified that the studies examining the effects of cruise ships would be identified with the assistance of a Glacier Bay Vessel Management Science Advisory Board (SAB). The SAB was established and a final report of their findings and recommendations was published in September 2005 (Glacier Bay National Park Science Advisory Board: Final Report, 2005). The SAB recommended a comprehensive research program that was presented in general terms with no prioritization or cost estimates. Because the research program outlined in the SAB could not be performed within the time and budget limitations facing park managers, the SAB recommended (and park managers agreed to fund) a social research problem analysis. Upon review of the final Program Analysis, park staff decided on a research program that would focus primarily on measuring impacts of cruise ships, if any, on the quality of visitor experience and secondarily on understanding the context in which cruise ship impacts occur and how these impacts arise. To accomplish these objectives, this proposed research includes the following components. (1) Assessment of cruise ship impacts, if any, on the quality of visitor experience. (2) The role of experience gatekeepers in visitor encounters with cruise ships. 1. Assessing impacts of cruise ships, if any, on the quality of visitor experiences in Glacier Bay proper. The purpose of the proposed study is to provide park managers with information about a variety of potential impacts of cruise ships on all visitor groups that have potential to encounter a cruise ship in Glacier Bay proper. Information about impacts of other mechanized transport, if any, on the quality of visitor experience will also be collected (1) to provide a context for understanding the role of cruise ships on the quality of visitor experience and (2) to examine aggregate effects of E:\FR\FM\05NON1.SGM 05NON1
