    Description

    Due to legislation passed in 1977, the Coastal Commission tock part in a study analyzing potential offshore Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) sites and the types of terminals that might occupy those sites. The study had to evaluate the engineering feasibility of siting an LNG receiving terminal offshore in relation to the maximum protection of coastal resource provisions required by the California Coastal Act. The Coastal Act embodies a broad range of policies for the protection of coastal resources, which includes providing for the protection of scenic and visual resources within the coastal zone. This paper analyzes the use of a visual simulation technique for the siting of offshore LNG terminals and describes how the technique was used to implement the scenic and visual protection policies of the California Coastal Act.
