This video was created by Ian Colvert, a survey technician with Coast Survey’s Navigation Response Team 6.
(Who can guess why he added a “smiley face” at the end of the greeting? Leave your answer in the comments.)

  1. Pam, this video includes a hydrographic play on words. Hydrographers use the common term “holiday” to describe a gap in coverage in mainscheme bathymetry, usually caused by operator error. This video depicts an intentional hydrographic “holiday” to spell out “happy holidays.” ;-) — Dawn

  2. Awesome! So, why the smiley face?

  3. Thanx 4 the greetings. Nice touch. Happy holidays to Noaa!

  4. Yay Fred, you got it!
