“Old School Hydro” in the Researchers’ Lab

If it’s not too much trouble, go along with us on November fourth (or search for our web recording) to consider going all in with Old School Hydro: Current and Noteworthy Reviewing On board the NOAA Boat “Thomas Jefferson!” Thursday, November 4 3:00 p.m. Researchers’ Lab

Throughout the mid year of 2010, U.Va. History educator and Researchers’ Lab GIS partner Max Edelson took a billet on board the NOAA Boat Thomas Jefferson as it outlined the waters off the western Keys of Florida. For seven days, he found out about current beach front looking over and hydrography direct and met the TJ’s officials and researchers about their encounters utilizing sonar-based detecting to gauge the degree of the Deepwater Skyline oil slick. To all the more likely get a grip on the primary thorough frontier studies of Florida made during the 1760s and 1770s, he enrolled a portion of the team to reproduce early current strategies by following the forms and estimating the profundities of a harbor in Key West. At the point when asked what they were up with their lead lines and sextants by confounded team mates, they answered, “We’re set for do some outdated hydro.”

This discussion portrays the craftsmanship and study of reviewing and mapmaking in and around the Florida Keys across 250 years.

All Researchers’ Lab occasions are free and open to all. No enlistment is required.
