bathymetry of the Indian Ocean from the GEBCO grid Forum in the news

News and events — August 2016

The Forum for Future Ocean Floor Mapping was held in Monaco in June 2016 and was attended by over 150 senior representatives, scientists, scholars and business associates from major ocean related organisations from around the world.

It has endorsed the objective of Seafloor 2030 – that the comprehensive mapping of the entire ocean floor is possible by the year 2030. More than 85 per cent of the world ocean floor remains unmapped with modern mapping methods.

Since the Forum, interest in Seafloor 2030 has quickened. Access articles in the media, from their web sites, about the Forum:
