To mark Japan Hydrography Day (*3), the Commandant of the Japan Coast Guard and the Commander of the Regional Coast Guard Headquarters presented testimonials to individuals and organizations that have contributed to marine information services (assisting with research related to the sea and marine information). This year, MOL group-managed vessels won praise for their significant contributions to the Coast Guard's marine information services by providing observed data on seawater temperature and oceanic currents (*4) over many years, and 18 of them were selected for special recognition.
Marine information provided by merchant vessels helps the JCG Hydrographic and Oceanographic Department, which collects marine information on ocean currents, tidal currents, and various other data, and in turn provides navigation-related information to vessels calling at ports in Japan.
