Public can provide written input, participate in webinar online sessions
NOAA's Hydrographic Services Review Panel, a federal advisory committee that advises the NOAA administrator on products and services related to navigation services, water levels and currents, and global positioning, will hold a virtual public meeting via webinar on April 28.
The panel will receive input and updates on navigation services activities and resource needs, sea level rise and coastal inundation, geospatial and positioning data, technology, the NOAA fleet, priorities for the Arctic, and integrated coastal and ocean mapping. The panel will consider information from this meeting as it makes recommendations to the NOAA administrator to support the strategic goals to strengthen the U.S. economic and national security through its focus on ocean mapping initiatives such as the Presidential Memorandum, “Ocean mapping of the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone and the Shoreline and Nearshore of Alaska.”
