As "ambassadors" to the nation's maritime community, the 12 regional navigation managers of NOAA's Office of Coast Survey understand the value and economic importance of America's maritime transportation system. In early 2011, they will conduct extensive outreach to better understand emerging requirements and ensure that NOAA's products and services promote the safe and efficient movement of U.S. exports and commerce.

NOAA's navigation managers will meet with the following organizations:

  • Port of Morgan City (Louisiana) Port Commission (Jan. 10)
  • Port Fourchon (Louisiana) Port Commission (Jan. 12)
  • San Francisco Harbor Safety Committee (Jan. 13)

The village's original location is deteriorating due to severe erosion and flooding.
