Mars is mapped in better detail than the ocean floor, which is why a project on the scale of some space missions was launched to change that. Listen to experts discuss how Seabed 2030 will work and what it could mean for marine conservation.

IN THIS EPISODE of Deeply Talks, Jessica Leber, Oceans Deeply’s deputy managing editor, talks with two experts about Seabed 2030, an ambitious project to map the seafloor over the next 12 years. Jessica is joined by Vicki Ferrini, a research scientist at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and Seabed 2030’s regional coordinator for the Atlantic and Indian oceans, and Samuel Georgian, a marine biogeographer at the Marine Conservation Institute.
