New Zealand to map 1/4 of earth sea floor

June 26, 2018

New Zealand will play an important role in an international project to map the entire world’s seabed by 2030.

The project is called Seabed 2030.

Only 15 percent percent of earth’s seabed is mapped, meaning we know more about the surface of mars and the moon.

GNS Science, NIWA and Land Information New Zealand will be jointly governing the South and West Pacific Ocean Regional Data Assembly and Co-ordination Centre.

That means that New Zealand will be in charge of 124 million square kilometres of seabed, or quarter of the sea floor.

The area includes the planet’s two deepest trenches – the Mariana and Kermadec Trenches, which are more than 10km deep.
