Hydrographic Services Review Panel, May 4-6

Thursday, April 28, 2011

The NOAA Hydrographic Services Review Panel will meet May 4-6 in Honolulu 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, which is to ensure the safe, efficient, and environmentally sound movement of commerce along America’s marine transportation system.

Agenda topics include local and regional issues of relevance to NOAA’s mission, such as commercial shipping, navigation safety, accuracy of land elevation data for coastal management, and natural hazard warning and response, such as for tsunamis.
