OS014:
New Perspectives on Seafloor Morphology and Geophysical Properties





Session ID#: 24098

Session Description:
Morphologic and geophysical details of the seafloor are from data collected by a variety of sensors- from echo-sounders, lasers, and multi-spectral scanners, to satellite altimeters. In addition, we have begun to apply machine learning techniques to enhance our knowledge in conjunction with new advances in mapping and data processing. As these techniques advance, the details of seafloor structure that they reveal provide new insights into a range of seafloor, oceanographic, and tectonic processes. This session invites contributions from studies using marine geodesy, high-resolution seafloor mapping - including regional and global data, and innovations in methods of compilation, gridding, uncertainty estimation, display techniques and machine learning that lead to enhanced interpretation. We seek contributions dealing with a wide range of applications including, but not limited to, high-resolution seafloor imagery, Seafloor 2030 and the X Prize, marine geodesy and/or machine learning that reveals new perspectives on seafloor morphology and geophysical properties.
