Tomer Ketter, data analyst with UNH’s Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping (CCOM), flew a drone to capture this photo of the Swedish icebreaker Oden as it mapped uncharted Arctic waters in July 2019. Ketter was on the Oden to collect seafloor data in the Northwest Passage and Baffin Bay as part of the Seabed 2030 Project, for which UNH co-leads the Arctic and North Pacific Ocean effort.
CCOM, a world leader in ocean mapping, engages with 45 industry partners (including five in New Hampshire) through its Industrial Associates Program. Partners provide CCOM students and researchers with in-kind access to technology or vessels; in turn, they receive access to CCOM-developed software and algorithms, which some of them have commercialized.
