The Hydrographic Services Review Panel (HSRP) will be meeting November 19-20.

The NOAA Hydrographic Services Review Panel (HSRP) is a Federal Advisory Committee that advises the NOAA Administrator on topics relating to operations, research and development, and dissemination of data pertaining to:  hydrographic surveying; nautical charting; water level measurements; current measurements; geodetic measurements; and geospatial measurements.
