Ocean Bathymetry Training Program

The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO and the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) jointly oversee a Guiding Committee for the General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (GEBCO) project. Since 2004, this project has been funded by the Nippon Foundation, based in Tokyo, Japan, to foster the training of ocean bathymetrists by establishing a Postgraduate Certificate in Ocean Bathymetry.

This one-year training program is currently accepting applications for academic year 2006-2007, with a fast approaching closing date of 25 February 2006.
