Newly appointed members of the Hydrographic Services Review Panel (HSRP) will participate in a two-day NOAA orientation and training on March 24-25. The Panel is composed of a diverse field of experts in hydrographic surveying, vessel pilotage, port administration, tides and currents, coastal zone management, geodesy, recreational boating, marine transportation, and academia. Advice from this panel will assist in addressing NOAA's strategic plan to improve the nation's marine transportation system and NOAA's plans to support commerce with world-class products and services that will help ensure safe, efficient, and environmentally sound marine transportation. Directors from NOAA's navigation services offices (Office of Coast Survey, Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services, and National Geodetic Survey) will present tours and overviews of their respective program offices, as well as an overview of navigation services.
