GEBCO and Seabed 2030 in the news

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.

The recently-launched Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project aims to bring together all available bathymetry data to produce the definitive map of the world ocean floor by 2030 and make it available to all.
