Explore the unexplored: New technologies for the ocean mapping Vespucci Tall Ship

The Earth is an ocean planet—more than 70 percent of the surface is covered by seawater. But despite being such an essential part of life, the deepest parts of the world’s oceans are still largely unexplored. According to the GEBCO, merely 25 percent of the seafloor has been mapped with accuracy and less than 18 percent in the Arctic. But the state of sea exploration is changing fast. The dark, high-pressure conditions of the ocean depths that once made research there impossible are now being explored with cutting-edge technology. That new tech and the discoveries to come from it are the focus of modern Ocean Mapping.
