C & C Technologies Inc. is sponsoring a six-day Shallow Water Multibeam Sonar Surveying Training Course in Lafayette, Louisiana hosted by C & C, the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The course will be held from October 21, 2002 through October 26, 2002 in NOAA's new facility located at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (ULL) National Wetlands Research Center.

Instructors include, Dr. Larry Mayer, Director of the Coastal and Ocean Mapping Center at the University of New Hampshire, Dr. John E.

The course is designed to provide a theoretical and practical background in marine swath survey technology and techniques. Although the emphasis is on "coastal surveying," the material presented includes, and is equally applicable to, swath bathymetric data collected in the outer continental shelf and deep-ocean. Course details are available on the Internet at
