Larry Mayer speaking.

Congratulations to CCOM Director Larry Mayer on being elected as a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union. The AGU Fellows are global leaders and experts who have made invaluable contributions the understanding of geosciences.

New oceanographic and bathymetric data collected by the Ryder Expedition while aboard the I/B Oden shed light on what is causing the rapid loss of the Greenland Ice Sheet, and may help predict the ice sheet's retreat in a warming climate.

The Okeanos Explorer Mapping Team headed up the creation of a first-of-its-kind manual for ship-based exploratory ocean mapping operations based on 10 years of experience in oceans waters around the globe.

Scientists from CCOM and around the globe have published the most detailed map to date of the Arctic Ocean seafloor.

CCOM has been awarded a three-year grant by NOAA's OER to partner with Saildrone, Inc. and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute to develop applications for a new 72-foot, wind-powered, sailboat-like ASV.
