Logo for Ocean Discovery Day (blue waves and orange fish)

The annual Ocean Discovery Day event was held on Sept. 16 and 17. Friday was student day, then we opened our doors to the public on Saturday. More than 2,000 people came to Chase Ocean Engineering Lab to learn first-hand about marine science and ocean engineering.

CCOM's new ASV has arrived—all the way from England. We filmed its "unboxing," and you can watch the video here>>

Sixteen new students have begun their coursework at the Center, including six scholars from the Nippon Foundation/GEBCO program. Egypt and Madagascar are represented for the first time—welcome to the family!

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.
