Webinar: NOAA Hydrographic Services Review Panel Meeting

NOAA Hydrographic Services Review Panel (HSRP) Federal Advisory Committee will have a virtual public meeting via webinar to focus on NOAA's navigation, observations, and positioning services, data and products

NOAA HSRP Public Meeting Webinar, September 1-2, 2021

The meeting will focus on issues related to hydrographic and navigation services, observations and positioning including topics affecting the NOS’ Office of Coast Survey, Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services, National Geodetic Survey, and the University of New Hampshire’s and NOAA’s Joint Hydrographic Center (JHC) and Center for Coastal Ocean Mapping. The HSRP advises the NOAA Administrator on matters that affect marine transportation, safe navigation, commercial shipping, ocean and coastal stewardship including sea level rise, resilience, flooding and inundation, coastal and marine spatial planning, geospatial and geodetic data, recreational boating, Arctic priorities, the National Spatial Reference System, the PORTS® system, tides and currents, mapping and surveying, and related topics.

The meeting will have 2 special sessions highlighting: 1) offshore wind energy and data sharing interests; and 2) the technology, operations and systems to support ocean surveying and mapping in less than 40 meters including lidar, satellite derived bathymetry, and multi-beam hydrographic surveys. There will be updates on NOS programs, as well as the ocean and coastal mapping implementation plans for NOMEC, "Establishing a National Strategy for Mapping, Exploring, and Characterizing the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone, June 2020", the Alaska Coastal Mapping Strategy (ACMS), coastal resilience and data, and other topics.
