In partnership with Nippon Foundation, GEBCO contracted the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping / Joint Hydrographic Center of the University of New Hampshire, to develop and offer the Postgraduate Certificate in Ocean Bathymetry training program. The Nippon Foundation of Japan is an independent, non-profit, grant-making organization founded in 1962.

Since 2004, the program has graduated over 100 scholars, many of whom are very active in the ocean mapping community.

Listen to their stories and learn how you could be involved too.
