A lecture, lab, and field course on the methods and procedures for the acquisition and processing of hydrographic and ocean mapping data. Practical experience in planning and conducting hydrographic surveys. Includes significant time underway (day trips and possible multi-day cruises) aboard survey vessel(s). Prereq: Fundamentals of Ocean Mapping, Geodesy and Positioning for Ocean Mapping; or permission. (Also listed as ESCI 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.
