ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Preparation of this web page is based on the contributions of many institutions and individuals. The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) thanks all the experts and stakeholders who attended the June 2000 GOMaP workshop in Bay St. Louis, MS, especially the speakers. Christian deMoustier (University of California at San Diego - Scripps Institution of Oceanography) and Larry Mayer (University of New Hampshire) contributed numerous ideas and facts both before and after the workshop, as did Richard Martino (National Imagery and Mapping Agency [NIMA]) and Chris Andreasen (NIMA). NRL also thanks GOMaP supporters who could not attend the workshop, especially Jim Gardner (U.S. Geological Survey), John Delaney (University of Washington), A.N. (Sandy) Shor (National Science Foundation), and Bruce Appelgate (University of Hawaii). The GOMaP workshop and EOS publications resulted in numerous inquiries and suggestions from around the United States and a number of other nations: NRL hopes this web page will stimulate more discussion and efforts to launch GOMaP.

The Bay St. Louis workshop and GOMaP related work by NRL scientists and the Office of Naval Research supported technical staff. Vice Admiral Paul Gaffney (then Chief of Naval Research) is particularly thanked for his endorsement of the GOMaP concept, and for funding the workshop. NRL also thanks Rear Adm. Kenneth Barbor (Ret.) (now Director, Hydrographic Science Research Center, University of Southern Mississippi) for his insightful welcoming remarks. Michael Carron (Senior Scientist, Naval Oceanographic Office) was one of the leading workshop participants and presented the GOMaP message at The Hydrographic Society of America (US HYDRO 01, June 2001). Ron MacNab (Geological Survey of Canada) presented GOMaP at its first international venue, at the UN Conference on the Law of the Sea in Monaco, October 2001.
