Wednesday, June 3, 2015

On June 1, a multi-national team of European, Canadian, and American ocean mapping experts set sail from St. John's, Newfoundland on the first trans-Atlantic mapping survey under the Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance. The Alliance was formed in May 2013 following the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Cooperation, whose goals are to join resources of its three signatories to better understand the North Atlantic Ocean and to promote the sustainable management of its resources.
