This week was the very successful Map the Gaps, a GEBCO Symposium on Bathymetry, held in Busan, South Korea. The symposium theme was “The world’s oceans are being mapped, one sounding at a time. Join us and hear from technologists, innovators, researchers and makers about mapping the last frontier: our oceans”.
The seminar and poster topics included: Ocean Mapping Projects; Ocean Mapping Technology; Emerging Scientists & Science; Policy, Projections and Trends.
Other highlights were the Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project, with the aim to facilitate the complete mapping of the global ocean floor by the year 2030.
Many thanks goto the hosts, the Hydrographic Society of Korea and Korea Hydrographic and Oceanographic Agency, and also to the conveners Jaya Roperez and Tim Kearns for a great week.
