Nearly a Quarter of the World’s Ocean Floor Now Mapped Under Seabed 2030 Project (2) [2022/07/26]
At the UN Ocean Conference side event in Lisbon on June 29, The Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project also announced a major new partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a part of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Signed by Seabed 2030 Head of Partnerships Mr. Stephen Hall and Dr. Rick Spinrad on behalf of NOAA, the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) formalizes U.S. participation in the ambitious project that has already begun between the two parties.

Mr. Hall said he was delighted by the latest partnership with NOAA, saying: “The expertise offered by this well-established institution and its scientists will play an invaluable role in taking us one step closer to the finish line. We intend to hit the ground running with the time remaining and signing this significant MOU at our event here in Lisbon is a testament to exactly that. Every minute counts.”

Dr. Spinrad said: “With the development of new tools and technologies for mapping and measuring its floor, we have a better capacity to understand its physical structure, and the life it supports, and therefore better understand our full planet. That knowledge can help us make better, more sustainable decisions−locally, nationally, and globally.”

All data collected and shared with the Seabed 2030 Project is included in the freely available GEBCO global grid–-the most complete bathymetric dataset of the world’s ocean floor.

When The Nippon Foundation launched Seabed 2030 with GEBCO at the UN Ocean Conference in 2017, only 6% of the world’s seabed had been mapped to modern standards.

Seabed 2030 continues to seek out new partnerships and technological advancements. So, I am particularly pleased by NOAA’s full commitment to the project.

I am convinced that this and other partnerships as well as further advances in technology and gathering already available data will contribute to achieving our ambitious goal of mapping the world’s entire seabed by the end of this decade.
