Annual GEBCO Bathymetric Science Day
The GEBCO Bathymetric Science Day is held every year during GEBCO's meetings. It consists of oral presentations and poster displays and attendance is open to all. We welcome contributions on topics relating to ocean-floor mapping and its applications.
In 2014, GEBCO Science Day was held as a session of the American Geophyscial Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, 15 - 19th December 2014, San Francisco, USA.
The session was titled: New Perspectives on Seafloor Morphology from High-Resolution Ocean Mapping.

Hosted at the Istituto di Scienze Marine in Venice, Italy, on 8th October 2013.
