The Seabed 2030 project has undergone a major revamp and rebranding, including the launch of a new website.
The Nippon Foundation-GEBCO project reaffirmed its commitment to improving and advancing our scientific knowledge about the Earth’s seafloor. The rebrand comes hot on the heels of the announcement that 24.9% of the seabed is mapped.
Prince Albert II of Monaco made the announcement that a further 5.4 million square kilometers (2 million square miles) of new data were added to the map earlier this month.
The new website aims to offer a much more informative platform for governments, scientist, and policymakers to give them current, updated information about the planet’s ocean floors.
According to Seabed 2030 Project Director Jamie McMichael-Phillips:
“We are excited to have a new and enhanced resource as part of our endeavor to map the entire ocean floor by 2030…We hope the new website will serve as a valuable hub for connecting individuals and organizations working towards the essential goal of mapping the world’s seafloor.”
