Community Input

Following from the GEBCO week of dedicated symposium sessions and working group meetings, Seabed 2030 would like to take the opportunity to find out more about what you need from us, as well as how you can help us.

We have re-opened our 'Wind in the Sails' survey, to help us get a better understanding of your possible data availability, data collection activities and priorities.

Working with the GEBCO sub-committee for Regional Undersea Mapping (SCRUM), we are gathering input on areas that are of high priority for new data via our online app

And if you have data you'd like to contribute to Seabed 2030 and GEBCO - then step over to our Data Contributions page to let us know.

The Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project and Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego have strengthened their collaboration with a newly-established Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The main purpose of the MOU is to pursue the attainment of worldwide bathymetric data, and to increase humanity’s understanding of the oceans.

Nippon Foundation GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project

Seabed 2030 is a collaborative project between the Nippon Foundation of Japan and the General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (GEBCO). It aims to bring together all available bathymetric data to produce the definitive map of the world ocean floor by 2030 and make it available to all.
