Larry Mayer, director of UNH’s Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping and the School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering, was inducted into the Hydrographer Hall of Fame this week at the annual Hydro 2017 conference.

The Hall of Fame was created by The Hydrographic Society of America (THSOA) to honor hydrographers who have had distinguished careers, contributed to the advancement of hydrographic science and/or provided exemplary service to the society.

THSOA honored Mayer for his work “at the forefront of advances in deep-water sonar, 3D and 4D visualization and the usage of hydrography as applied to the Law of the Sea,” as well as for educating a generation of hydrographers around the world. 

Hydrography is the science that measures and describes the physical features of bodies of water.
