In a partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the University of Southern California Sea Grant Program is recruiting three participants for a new Mappers-in-Training Program (MiTP) for a Fall 2018 field study in early October; the exact dates are expected to be confirmed by August 1. This program is open to enrolled graduate students.

The internship will include 1-2 days of land-based meetings at the University of Southern California Sea Grant Program offices in Los Angeles, and at the Southern California offices of NOAA and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management to orient students to the missions and data needs of these federal agencies. Interns will subsequently spend 11 days aboard the NOAA Ship Rainier mapping the seafloor around the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary. The MiTP will provide the opportunity to gain an understanding of how seafloor maps are used by federal agencies to support the U.S.’s blue economy, and make informed decisions about our coastal and ocean resources. It will also provide the opportunity to gain experience making seafloor maps using advanced multibeam sonar (sound navigation and ranging) systems, while also contributing in a significant way to NOAA’s ocean and coastal mapping mission. Towards the end of their time at sea, interns will be asked to give short presentations describing what they learned during their experience. These presentations will also provide an opportunity to discuss mapping as a career with the NOAA Ship Rainier’s officers, technicians and crew.
