  Developing a 10-Year EEZ seafloor mapping and research program
Titel: Developing a 10-Year EEZ seafloor mapping and research program
Auteur: Lockwood, Millington
Hill, Gary W.
Verschenen in: Marine geodesy
Paginering: Jaargang 12 (1988) nr. 3 pagina's 167-175
Jaar: 1988
Inhoud: Mapping and research on the seafloor adjacent to the United States has been a national effort involving elements of the Department of the Interior, the Department of Commerce, certain academic institutions, and private industry, the latter primarily for the exploration for oil and gas. These activities were accelerated by the USGS and NOAA in 1983, following the issuance of the EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone) Proclamation by President Reagan. The intent of expanding the exploration already begun on the outer continental shelf (OCS) to the frontier of the EEZ is to determine the “characteristics”; and resource potential of this region. To coordinate this exploration, a Joint Office for Mapping and Research (JOMAR) has been established by the U.S. Geological Survey (in the Department of the Interior) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (in the Department of Commerce). JOMAR's main purpose is to help direct and coordinate ongoing and planned seafloor related activities in the EEZ and prepare a 10-year plan for mapping and research. JOMAR recently hosted a national symposium to identify the major elements of this plan. A comprehensive mapping and research plan will provide the needed direction and guide this national challenge.
