Strange & Weird
The California Undersea Imagery Archive is initiating a crowd-sourcing effort to document the observations of fishes and invertebrates in new and unusual places, including movements north from Mexico into southern California and movements from southern California north of Point Conception. Informational flyers were distributed at dive shops along the entire state in a wide-reaching request for video imagery and associated metadata.
Seafaring Era Ends
With an ahoy and adieu to Dr. Rikk Kvitek on his August retirement, we also bid farewell to the Seafloor Mapping Lab. Built during CSUMB's early years, the SFML established itself as a reliable member of the seafloor mapping, education, and scientific community; and importantly, provided scores of students with highly marketable hydrographic training through classes and lab employment. The SFML Data Library, containing two decades of survey products, will remain publicly available, including the substantial statewide collection garnered through the multi-institution collaborative California Seafloor Mapping Program (CSMP).
