Seafloor geomorphology is the study of physical features on the seafloor. This layer represents the characterizations of geomorphic features and the zones within the ocean where they occur. The data for this layer are from the first map of seafloor geomorphology ever published; this map was published 2014 by GRID Arendal.
“The new seafloor features map provides a foundation on which to build an understanding of the living and non-living resources of the ocean and to improve decision making on a range of global issues like food security, resource use and conservation.”
– Dr. Peter Harris, the project leader and Managing Director of GRID-Arendal.
The geomorphic features in this layer were created by automated and manual processes over the course of many months. The source data for the process is a modified 30-arc second (~1 km) resolution version of SRTM30_PLUS global bathymetry produced in 2009.
