Under the joint auspices of the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO, GEBCO’s aim is to provide the most authoritative publicly available bathymetry of the world ocean. As part of this centennial project, GEBCO has been funded by the Nippon Foundation to train a new generation of scientists and hydrographers in ocean bathymetry through a 12-month course, leading to the ‘Postgraduate Certificate in Ocean bathymetry’ (PCOB) at the University of New Hampshire (USA).

Nominations are being sought for the 21st class of the IOC-IHO-Nippon Foundation / GEBCO Training Program that will begin in late August 2024. Funding for this training programme is currently awaiting confirmation from the Nippon Foundation at the end of March.

Students will follow an intensive 12-month training course including lectures, practical laboratory work and projects on the water, secondments to relevant laboratories and cruises on research or survey ships. In addition to the university teaching staff, other experts will be involved in giving  specialized lectures.
