Ocean Mapping: Exposing the Secrets of the Deep

Larry Mayer

Over the past fifty years there have been remarkable advances in using sonar to map the seafloor and the water column. These advances combine sophisticated sonar technology with advanced visualization tools and are providing new perspectives of the seafloor, including the discovery of 10,000-foot mountains in the Arctic, D-Day wrecks, and fisheries, and insight into the aftermath of events like the Deepwater Horizon spill.

Larry Mayer is a professor and the director of the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping at the University of New Hampshire. He serves as co-chair of NOAA’s Ocean Exploration Advisory Working Group, a member of the National Science Foundation’s Ocean Observatories Initiative Program Advisory Committee, and the State Department’s Extended Continental Shelf Task Force.
