Saildrone and Seabed 2030 will work together to leverage technological innovation to more quickly and efficiently collect ocean mapping data and make it freely available to all.

By: Saildrone | April 19, 2023

Accurate ocean depths and seafloor topography are essential for navigation, coastal management, tsunami forecasting, telecommunications, offshore energy, understanding weather and climate, managing environmental changes, and so much more. But only 23% of the global ocean has been mapped using modern, high-resolution tools, leaving substantial gaps in our knowledge about our oceans. This lack of exploration is largely due to the high cost of accessing our oceans, which has traditionally been undertaken by large ships that are expensive to build and operate.

2025-2035 Decadal Survey of Ocean Sciences for the National Science Foundation: Call for Experts

About the Activity & the Call for Experts

Learn more about the activity here

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is seeking suggestions for experts to participate in the new study on advising the National Science Foundation’s Division of Ocean Sciences (NSF OCE) on forward-looking approaches to guide investments in research, infrastructure, and workforce development. The committee will develop a compelling research and infrastructure strategy to advance understanding of the ocean’s role in the Earth system and the sustainable blue economy. The report will recommend ways that NSF OCE could develop the capacity to respond nimbly as priorities change and new opportunities emerge over the 2025-2035 decade.

Using these suggestions, National Academies staff will be looking to build a committee of volunteer experts in addition to collecting information for potential speakers, participants, and peer reviewers for any publications resulting from the activity.

This study will be carried out by a committee of approximately 20 volunteer experts with broad knowledge of the ocean sciences, engineering, and technology, including subfields such as:
