GEBCO's work is directed by a Guiding Committee and supported by technical, mapping and outreach sub-committees plus ad hoc working groups.
A complete A to Z listing of GEBCO contacts is available.
The Guiding Committee oversees the work of the GEBCO sub-committees and working groups. It consists of five appointees from each of GEBCO's parent organisations, the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO.

GEBCO has been funded by the Nippon Foundation, based in Tokyo, Japan, to train a new generation of scientists and hydrographers in ocean bathymetry. The twelve-month course, leading to a Postgraduate Certificate in Ocean Bathymetry (PCOB), is held at the University of New Hampshire, USA.
A list of scholars from the course is maintained on the web site of the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping (CCOM) at the University of New Hampshire. Use the links below to access the list.
