A very active participation had the Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service of the Navy in the different activities carried out in the city of Arica, as part of the celebration of the Mes del Mar (Month of the Sea), which has a slogan the "Contribution of the Maritime Activity to the National Development".

The Maritime Fair took place at the Vicuña Mackena Square between May 2 and 5. SHOA was present and had a booth with information about the work done by the National Tsunami Warning System (SNAM) and the technology with which the Service currently works. Additionally, the people attending the fair were able to get familiarized with the Flood Charts by Tsunami and the area, which was very interesting to them.

This fair, open to public, had the peculiarity of forming an anchor with the layout of the booths, which could be seen from a high point above the fair, this layout was designed by the Service which in an innovative and attractive way was able to transmit to the visitors part of the countless activities carried out by the Chilean Navy to benefit the community and the country.
