Seafloor bathymetric data acquired with modern swath echo sounders provide coverage for only a small fraction of the global seabed yet are of high value for studies of the dynamic processes of seafloor volcanism, tectonics, mass wasting, and sediment transport that create and shape the undersea landscape. A new method for compilation of global seafloor bathymetry that preserves the native resolution of swath sonars is presented. The Global Multi‐Resolution Topography synthesis consists of a… 
Seafloor Mapping – The Challenge of a Truly Global Ocean Bathymetry
Detailed knowledge of the shape of the seafloor is crucial to humankind. Bathymetry data is critical for safety of navigation and is used for many other applications. In an era of ongoing
Depths of Modern Coastal Sand Clinoforms
Abstract Clinoforms are classical geological features. Examples in the rock record or in seismic reflection data that originally formed in shallow water can potentially help to locate paleo–sea
Digital mapping of coastal boulders – high‐resolution data acquisition to infer past and recent transport dynamics
Coastal boulder fields provide clues to long‐term frequency‐magnitude patterns of coastal flooding events and have the potential to play an important role in coastal hazard assessment. Mapping

Clinforms are classical geological features. Examples in the rock record or in seismic reflection data that originally formed in shallow water can potentially help to locate paleo–sea level, but
The role of deep-water sedimentary processes in shaping a continental margin : The Northwest Atlantic
The tectonic history of a margin dictates its general shape; however, its geomorphology is generally transformed by deep-sea sedimentary processes. The objective of this study is to show the
High‐resolution multibeam sonar bathymetry of the deepest place in each ocean
Over the course of 10 months, the global Five Deeps Expedition (2018–2019) mapped ~550,000 km2 of seafloor of which 61% comprised new coverage over areas never before surveyed and ~30% was acquired
A new digital bathymetric model of the world's oceans
General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (GEBCO) has released the GEBCO_2014 grid, a new digital bathymetric model of the world ocean floor merged with land topography from publicly available digital
High-resolution multibeam bathymetry of the northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge at 45–46° N: the Moytirra hydrothermal field
ABSTRACT This work presents a new high-resolution multibeam bathymetric map of a segment of active deep sea-floor spreading in the Atlantic Ocean, the northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR) at 45–46º N.


Global Bathymetry and Elevation Data at 30 Arc Seconds Resolution: SRTM30_PLUS
A new 30-arc second resolution global topography/bathymetry grid (SRTM30_PLUS) has been developed from a wide variety of data sources. Land and ice topography comes from the SRTM30 and ICESat
Global Sea Floor Topography from Satellite Altimetry and Ship Depth Soundings
A digital bathymetric map of the oceans with a horizontal resolution of 1 to 12 kilometers was derived by combining available depth soundings with high-resolution marine gravity information from the
Global seafloor topography from a least‐squares inversion of altimetry‐based high‐resolution mean sea surface and shipboard soundings
SUMMARY We present a new worldwide 1/16 ◦ × 1/16 ◦ map of seafloor topography computed from an iterative inversion combining altimetry measurements of the marine geoid and shipboard echo soundings
An Evaluation of Publicly Available Global Bathymetry Grids
We evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of six publicly available global bathymetry grids: DBDB2 (Digital Bathymetric Data Base; an ongoing project of the Naval Research Laboratory), ETOPO2 (Earth
An improved bathymetric portrayal of the Arctic Ocean: Implications for ocean modeling and geological, geophysical and oceanographic analyses
A digital representation of ocean floor topography is essential for a broad variety of geological, geophysical and oceanographic analyses and modeling. In this paper we present a new version of the
Seamount topography by least-squares inversion of altimetric geoid heights and shipborne profiles of bathymetry and/or gravity anomalies
SUMMARY Altimetric measurements of sea-surface heights have long been used to locate uncharted marine features. Newly available data sets (Geosat-GM, ERS-1 and Topex/Poseidon), now allow the
Digital images of combined oceanic and continental data sets and their use in tectonic studies
Recently, much interest has centered around the development of gridded geophysical data sets capable of resolving features important for tectonic studies of the earth's crust and lithosphere in both
Global distribution of seamounts from Seasat profiles
Bathymetrie profiles and contour charts have been used to study the distribution of seamounts in the deep ocean basins, but only a small fraction of the seafloor has been sampled by ships. At the
