Discussion at University of New Hampshire about Law of the Sea
On February 5, Debbie Hutchinson and Erika Hammar-Klose (Woods Hole Field Center) visited
Larry Mayer and Martin Jakobsson at the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping/Joint
Hydrographic Center at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) in Durham, NH.
The purpose of the visit was to discuss a cooperative project between UNH, the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the USGS that will result in a report for the U.S.
State Department that has been mandated by Congress. The report will cover data sources
used to evaluate Federal offshore claims as they relate to the Law of the Sea, a United Nations
convention that provides the international legal framework for exercising the rights and duties
of countries related to their use of ocean space and resources. Other USGS researchers
involved in the Law of the Sea project are Terry Edgar (St. Petersburg), Shawn Dadisman
(St. Petersburg), and Jon Childs (Menlo Park).
