NOAA seeks applicants for hydrographic services advisory panel membership
“Quality data is essential to NOAA maritime programs, whether it is developing innovative products for precision navigation, creating richer data streams for ocean observations, or tapping into new possibilities of crowdsourcing and other modes of data collection,” said Russell Callender, Ph.D, acting assistant NOAA administrator for the National Ocean Service. “As we determine future priorities, we depend on advice from actual users of our products, and this panel is a vital part of that information gathering process.”
The panel advises NOAA on operations and research issues related to hydrographic surveying, nautical charts, tides and currents, geodetic and geospatial measurements, and coastal resilience. Applicants should have expertise in marine navigation; port administration; marine shipping or other intermodal transportation industries; cartography and geographic information systems; geodesy; physical oceanography; coastal resource management, including coastal resilience and emergency response; or other science-related fields.
NOAA’s mission is to understand and predict changes in the Earth's environment, from the depths of the ocean to the surface of the sun, and to conserve and manage our coastal and marine resources. Join us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and our other social media channels.
