Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Deep-Sea Research and Exploration

The Deep-Sea Research and Exploration program is collaborating with the scientific community to explore opportunities where Global Oceans’ MARV vessel model (Modular Adaptive Research Vessel) can fill expand at-sea research capacity and enable new research that will accelerate crucial knowledge about the deep sea and oceanic ecosystems, in the open ocean and in remote and understudied regions.

Under this program, the Global Seamounts Project (GSP) has been launched as a 5-year international initiative to comprehensively survey eighteen deep-sea seamounts in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, and to generate new biophysical models of seamount ecosystems – one of the largest, most productive, and least understood oceanic biomes. GSP workshops for Biophysical/Ecosystem Modeling and for Field Campaign planning are in development for late 2020 and early 2021. A multi-year program budget is in development in anticipation of philanthropic funding.
