The Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project and the Global Multi-Resolution Topography (GMRT) Synthesis Project, operated at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, have paved the way for a future of collaborative working by entering into a Letter of Intent.
BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA-- Schmidt Ocean Institute’s research vessel Falkor has collected the first public seafloor data of the New Year, as part of a global effort to map the entire ocean floor by 2030.
New bathymetric and oceanographic data collected by an international team of ocean scientists provide important insights into the processes that are controlling the rapid loss of the Greenland Ice Sheet over the last four decades. The ground-breaking data, published in the Nature Journal Communications Earth & Environment, will be contributed to The Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project, which aims to have the definitive and complete map of the ocean seafloor by 2030.
A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the Seabed 2030 Project and IIC Technologies Ltd. The MOU establishes a new partnership between Seabed 2030 and IIC Technologies in recognition that both parties are working to increase our understanding of the global oceans.
The Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project has today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with REV Ocean, to work together to advance understanding of the ocean floor and support the United Nation’s Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
Sea-Kit have recently been able to gather invaluable bathymetric data by kind permission of the mission sponsors. Members of the Seabed 2030 alumni team worked remotely on a 24/7 shift rota to; plan the data gathering mission, monitor the sonar, execute the data gathering and process the data.
On World Hydrography Day, The Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project, has announced the inclusion of 14.5 million square kilometres of new bathymetric data in the latest GEBCO Grid. Nearly a fifth of the world's entire ocean floor has now been mapped.
