NOAA began its spring post-Sandy hydrographic work on April 11, searching for underwater storm debris and mapping the depths surrounding Liberty Island, according to a story in Maritime Executive magazine.

NOAA helped re-open the Port of New York and New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy hit in late October and it returns at the request of the National Park Service, which is working to re-establish safe navigation and docking at the Statue of Liberty in preparation for its planned re-opening on July 4.
