Practical experience in planning and conducting hydrographic surveys. Includes significant time underway (day trips and possible multi-day cruises) aboard survey vessel(s). Prereq: Introduction to Ocean Mapping; Geodesy and Positioning for Ocean Mapping; or permission. (Also listed as OE 972.)
Section Comments: If due to external circumstances such as the COVID19 pandemic, the on-water collection of survey data is precluded, the experience will be simulated. This simulation will be implemented through the use of unprocessed data from previous iterations of the course.
