Lautenbacher at UNH console

Retired Navy Vice Admiral Conrad Lautenbacher, PhD, (center), who serves as both undersecretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator, gets an introduction to the console at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) by Dr. Larry Mayer (right) and Dr. Brian Calder, both of UNH, Center for Ocean and Coastal Mapping.  The photo was taken during a live interaction among four of the shore-based consoles — URI, UNH, the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory, and Silver Spring, Maryland — as they interacted with Dr. Robert Ballard and Webb Pinner of NOAA OE, at sea during a 2006 expedition to survey for ancient shipwrecks in the Sea of Crete.
