Young Talent Flourishes in the Ocean Discovery XPRIZE

Monday, June 3, 2019

The winning team of the Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE was the GEBCO-Nippon Foundation Alumni Team. They not only managed to map the required area successfully, but did so at a resolution of around 5 meters—significantly better than existing technologies. The success of the team is part of a wider project to by the Nippon Foundation and GEBCO to try and map the entire seabed by 2030.
