Sub-Committee on Regional Undersea Mapping (SCRUM)

SCRUM's aims are to facilitate a closer collaboration with regional mapping efforts and coordinate, as well as encourage, the incorporation of their compilations into GEBCO.

The GEBCO grid in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea includes data from the EMODnet regional gridThe formation of a new Sub-Committee on Regional Undersea Mapping (SCRUM) was proposed during the twenty-sixth GEBCO Guiding Committee meeting in 2009.

In order to build the next generation of improved GEBCO global bathymetric compilations, regional expertise is required and this can only be achieved by fully taking advantage of regional mapping efforts.
