These PLOs transferred jurisdiction of approximately 171 acres of public land withdrawn for the Naval Arctic Research Laboratory near Barrow, Alaska from the Department of the Navy to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Geological Survey, and withdrew an additional 45 acres of public land on behalf of these agencies for the Barrow Base Line Observatory and the Barrow Magnetic Observatory.

The U.S. Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Geological Survey have filed applications to extend the withdrawal for an additional 20-year period to continue protection of the facilities at the Barrow Base Line Observatory and the Barrow Magnetic Observatory. This withdrawal comprises approximately 216 acres of public land located within U.S. Survey No. 5253 in secs. 23 and 26, T. 23 N., R. 18 W., Umiat Meridian, and is described in PLO No. 2344 (26 FR 3701, (1961)), as E:\FR\FM\15JYN1.SGM 15JYN1 srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 135 / Thursday, July 15, 2010 / Notices modified by PLO No. 6839 (56 FR 13413, (1991)). A complete description, along with all other records pertaining to the extension application, can be examined in the BLM Alaska State Office at the address listed in the ADDRESSES section of this notice.
