Hydrographic Services Review Panel Meeting

Thursday, October 07, 2010

The NOAA Hydrographic Services Review Panel will meet Oct. 12-13, in Vancouver, Wash., to discuss operations, research and development, hydrographic surveying, nautical charting, and geodetic and geospatial measurements. The panel is a Federal Advisory Committee that advises the NOAA administrator on carrying out NOAA’s navigation services mission — to ensure the safe, efficient, and environmentally sound movement of commerce along America’s marine transportation system. The panel will hear from representatives from the maritime community, including port authority officials and marine pilots, as well as non-traditional users of navigation data like coastal planners and emergency responders. Agenda topics relate to both NOAA’s mission and a multitude of other topics including the West Coast Governors’ Agreement on Ocean Health, local and regional marine and navigation issues.

NOAA’s Hydrographic Services Review Panel Meeting: The entire meeting is open to the public with public comment periods scheduled in the afternoons.
