MB-System: Mapping the Seafloor

MB-System Planning Meeting

January 17-18, 2012
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
Organized and Convened by Dale Chayes and David Caress

Goals of this meeting:

  1. Define priorities and tasks for the next five-year MB-System project to be proposed to NSF-OCE in February by Caress and Chayes.
  2. Define priorities and tasks for MB-System related development efforts by other groups.
