Hadley Owen is an officer in NOAA’s Commissioned Officer Corps, currently pursuing a Certificate in Ocean Mapping through the Master’s in Earth Sciences program at UNH. While her love of charts started at a young age, her introduction to hydrographic mapping came aboard the NOAA Ship Fairweather, which conducted surveys in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, along the Arctic North Slope, and in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Additionally, she has sailed aboard the NOAA Ships Ferdinand Hassler, Pisces, and Hi’ialakai. Most recently, Hadley served as part of the field operations team with NOAA’s Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, based out of Honolulu, HI.

Hadley graduated from Princeton University many years ago. While there, she completed a senior thesis modeling the chemical and physical oceanography of Antarctic Intermediate Water, and received an A.B. in Geosciences. In the years between her graduation and her commissioning, she worked in a variety of roles; however, her experience has almost always centered on travel, boats, and the ocean. She is excited to be back in an academic environment and to strengthen her hydrographic knowledge and experience.
