The General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (GEBCO) operates under the joint auspices of the IOC and the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO). It involves a group of international experts in seafloor mapping who are working together to develop a range of bathymetric data sets and data products for scientists and resource managers.
The Guiding Committee includes five members appointed by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) and five members appointed by the IOC for a five-year term, renewable once.
One IOC-appointed seat will become vacant in 2022. The deadline to submit nominations is 11 January 2022.
