"Surveying the Seafloor and More with NOAA"
Updating Nautical Charts Post Hurricane Sandy on NOAA's Hydrographic Thomas Jefferson Vessel

Laura Guertin, associate professor of Earth sciences and Rita Bowker, will present on their experiences and research on the NOAA ship Thomas Jefferson as part of the Teacher at Sea program. The research consisted of hydrographic surveying which uses side scan and multibeam echo sonar technologies to measure water depth and search the seafloor for wrecks, rocks, debris and other obstructions that could be potential navigational hazards to surface ships. These results are then used to create nautical charts.
