Mapping the Gaps Northbound

May 25 – June 4, 2024

Expedition Partners

This expedition is a seafloor mapping transit that brings the E/V Nautilus from the Central to the Eastern Pacific Ocean. This 10-day cruise will start in Honolulu and end in Sidney (British Columbia) and utilize the deep-water mapping capabilities of E/V Nautilus to map previously uncharted seafloor enroute. Collected bathymetry data will be used to fill gaps in seabed mapping and thereby support priorities of Seabed 2030, the Ocean Networks Canada Strategic Plan, and the US National Strategy for Mapping, Exploration, and Characterization.

This expedition is funded by Ocean Networks Canada.
