(Who can guess why he added a “smiley face” at the end of the greeting? Leave your answer in the comments.)

Thanx 4 the greetings. Nice touch. Happy holidays to Noaa!
Awesome! So, why the smiley face?
Pam, this video includes a hydrographic play on words. Hydrographers use the common term “holiday” to describe a gap in coverage in mainscheme bathymetry, usually caused by operator error. This video depicts an intentional hydrographic “holiday” to spell out “happy holidays.” 😉 — Dawn
