Atlantic Seabed Mapping and Exploration – Achievements, Challenges and Opportunities

Seabed mapping is important for a wide range of interdisciplinary studies, and several projects in the Atlantic Ocean share a vision for developing capacity and a strong international coalition that shares mapping data, approaches and knowledge to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes. This Side Event will summarize the current state of seabed mapping and exploration in the Atlantic, trace the progress and lessons learned from existing efforts, and explore opportunities for developing new collaborations to accelerate progress toward common goals throughout the Atlantic.

Co-organized by the Seabed 2030 Regional Center for the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, the AORA Atlantic Seabed Mapping International Working Group, the Atlantic Seafloor Partnership for Integrated Research and Exploration (ASPIRE), iAtlantic, and Mission Atlantic.

Event will take place on June 2, 2021 from 13:00-14:30 UTC
