Women in Hydrography
In January DML hosted the inaugural recipients of the DML, OI and LINZ co-sponsored Women in Hydrography experience. Eliza McCracken from University of Canterbury and Sophie Clayton from University of Otago joined the DML team, getting a taste of what life is like at a Hydrographic Surveying company. Their experience included time onboard DML’s survey vessel TUPAIA undertaking surveys for the Port of Tauranga. DML thanks Eliza and Sophie for their enthusiasm and interest in the hydrographic surveying industry. For more information on Empowering Women in Hydrography see https://iho.int/en/basic-cbsc-ewh
DML were also sad to say goodbye to our summer intern Ella Westenberg in February. Ella joined DML in November and quickly became part of the team getting involved on all aspects of life at DML. Ella plans to use her experience with processing acoustic backscatter at DML to help her achieve Honours in Marine Science from the University of Otago in 2023.
