    Jack L. Wallace

    July 17, 1942 - June 21, 2016

    It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Jack L. Wallace.

    Jack L. Wallace was selected to the Hydrographer Hall of Fame to honor his outstanding commitment to The Hydrographic Society of America (THSOA). Mr. Wallace served as a NOAA officer and worked for many years as the manager of several departments in the Office of Coast Survey. He has been involved with THSOA since its inception and has served multiple terms on the Board of Trustees and as Treasurer of the organization. He has devoted countless hours to serve THSOA as a volunteer and has been the glue that has held the society together through good times and bad.”

    During this time, our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

           The Hydrographic Society of America
           would like to congratulate
           Hydrographers around the world on




    World Hydrography Day / June 21

    "Hydrography - the key to well-managed seas and waterways"

    The IHO considers that hydrography is a fundamental enabler for all human activities that take place in, on or under the sea. It is therefore an underpinning factor in the proper monitoring, management and governance of the seas and waterways.  For all these reasons, the IHO has chosen as its theme for World Hydrography Day 2016:  Hydrography – the key to well-managed seas and waterways. The theme also highlights the fact that there are significant gaps in our knowledge.

    THSOA would like you to share a bit about what you or your company does in 50 words or less and how you or your company are contributing and raising awareness of the importance of the seas and waterways?
