Hydrography is the science of mapping and measuring the physical features and movements of oceans, seas, rivers, and lakes. NCCOS scientists just got back from a hydrography-focused cruise aboard the R/V Nancy Foster in which they were using remote sensing technologies and ground truthing methods, like this drop camera, to learn more about the seafloor around Carolina Long Bay.
