An international team of hydrographers and ocean mappers trained and led by UNH’s Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping (CCOM) has progressed to the final round of the Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE, a global competition challenging teams to advance deep-sea technologies for ocean floor exploration. The GEBCO-Nippon Foundation Alumni Team — alumni and industry partners and advisors led by CCOM’s Rochelle Wigley, director of UNH’s Nippon Foundation/GEBCO (General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans) Ocean Bathymetry training program — is one of just nine of the initial 19 teams to advance to the final round.
