Aerial view of the Healy steaming through open water.

Dave Forcucci, Marine Science Coordinator for the USCGC Healy, put together an amazing video from our recent Law of the Sea cruise. If you're wondering about the aerial footage, Dave used a kite to get those spectacular shots.

The survey team poses on the pier in front of the M/V Fugro Supporter.

CCOM researchers and students have completed a research cruise to collect multibeam sonar and subbottom data as part of the Center’s Extended Continental Shelf Bathymetry Project.

Congratulations to Professor Jennifer Miksis-Olds who has been awarded a federal contract to study ocean ecosystems through underwater acoustic research.

Why is it important to map the ocean? How can we accomplish it? Newsweek has the story.

Get to know the R/V Gulf Surveyor! Lee Alexander gives a tour of the vessel, talks about what went into its design, build, and journey to NH, and shares how we will use it to further our mission.

Spotlight on...

BAG Explorer is a light application to explore the tree-like structure of a BAG file, to visualize and validate its XML metadata content, to inspect the tracking list, to plot the elevation and the uncertainty layers, and much more. The application is based on HDF Compass and the HydrOffice BAG tools.
