 previous story | next story

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).
