    The theme for World Hydrography Day 2015 (WHD-2015) is: ‘Our seas and waterways - yet to be fully charted and explored’. A reception celebrating WHD-2015 will take place on board the Japan Coast Guard training vessel Kojima, in Port Hercule, Monaco, at 18:00 on 30 June 2015. The Hydrographers of Member States or their representatives are invited to this reception. 

    The theme for World Hydrography Day 2015 concentrates on the fact that much of the world’s seas, oceans and navigable waters remain unsurveyed and is intended to raise public awareness that, for example, there are higher resolution maps of the Moon and Mars than for many parts of our seas and coastal waters.

    This year’s theme also provides the opportunity to encourage innovative supplementary data gathering initiatives to help obtain more useful depth data. This includes crowd-sourcing using existing ships and ship’s equipment, and developments in the analysis of satellite imagery in areas where the water is clear enough. These methods cannot replace highly accurate and thorough hydrographic surveys using specialist ships and equipment, but they can provide useful depth information where otherwise there is none available.

    The goal of the THSOA-Southeast Chapter Education Sub-committee is to target high school students to make them aware of hydrography and related fields as a viable career path.  We will foster an interest in the science and technology in the hydrographic science industry to help create the workforce of tomorrow we will need.  We do not intend to promote any company or academic institution, but rather to promote our work to high school age students to show that there are exciting career paths in this field.

    THSOA - Southeast Chapter serves as the focal point for hydrographic activities in the Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida areas. The Board would like to invite members and non-members to attend our monthly meetings to learn more about the organization, meet other professionals, and gain further knowledge on the subject of hydrography. With technical presentations given at most monthly meetings, one can learn more about the industry, equipment and application updates, as well as news in the industry.

    FLORIDA ADDED TO THE AREA SERVED BY THSOA_SOUTHEAST CHAPTER (Formerly LA Chapter) The THSOA - Southeast Chapter is excited to announce an expansion in the area that we serve as the focal point for hydrographic activities. The state of Florida along with Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama is now represented by one chapter. To better reflect the areas we cover we are also changing our name to THSOA-Southeast Chapter (LA, MS, AL, FL). Our new email address is THSOA_southeastchapter@yahoo.com

    Soon the U.S. Coast Guard will begin testing virtual Aids to Navigation (ATONs). Unlike physical aids to navigation, such as buoys or lighthouses, information from the new Automated Identification System ATONs will be broadcasted over the air. In preparation for this impending change, Coast Survey has developed a new set of symbols to depict these virtual navigation aids which will be added to upcoming editions of NOAA nautical charts. http://www.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/mcd/updates/ais_aton.html
