In the last ten to twenty years new sophisticated technologies have been developed that hold tremendous potential for mapping and interpreting the ocean in unprecedented detail. This talk will focus on recent technical advances in mapping the deepest parts of our planet. The development and improvement of deep ocean mapping technologies is important not only for scientific discovery, but also to meet additional demands in government and conservation.
