Data from Uncharted Waters Provides Key Insights into Glacial Melting Processes

6 November 2020
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.

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.
