CCOM and Healy make National Geographic!

The Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping, and all the mapping it has been doing aboard the USCGC Healy, has made this month's National Geographic Magazine!

here is the link:

I like that they go into detail about the Russians planting the flag, rather than just go off the handle and imply that there was a rushed American response and not check their sources for any of it (ahem! *cough* Discover Magazine *cough*). They actually interviewed Larry Mayer and got the story straight.

Here is the accompanying map, provided by Larry Mayer. It even includes that data I helped collect on the cruise this past autumn!
