Knowing the depth and shape of the seafloor (bathymetry) is a fundamental parameter for understanding ocean circulation, tides, tsunami forecasting, fishing resources, environmental change, underwater geo-hazards, cable and pipeline routing, mineral extraction, oil and gas exploration and much more.
