Seafloor Mapping

Contours of the Ocean Floor Lesson Plan

The seafloor is covered with interesting geologic features from trenches to seamounts, but we have only mapped 20% of the global ocean. There is still much work that needs to be done before we have a complete view of the seafloor and its features. In the following lesson, students learn how to become bathymetry experts and use real mapping data to learn how to create and understand maps of the seafloor in 2D and 3D.
