The annual ocean exploration supplement to Oceanography is out! This beautiful publication highlights the 2017 field season of the E/V Nautilus, the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer, and the R/V Falkor. Our collaboration with these vessels is integral to our work at CCOM and many of our researchers contributed to these stories of discovery.

Sound Speed Manager streamlines the use of sound speed profiles in survey acquisition and data processing. The app provides support for commonly-used formats, model-based profile enhancement, and database management with built-in functionalities for analysis and visualization. Sound Speed Manager is an open-source project jointly developed by CCOM and NOAA Coast Survey Development Laboratory.
