US EEZ Mapping

Wrapping up Nautilus’ calendar year is a straightforward seafloor mapping of the US exclusive economic zone aiming to fill in coverage gaps from all the research ever done in the Southern California sea board.

More than 80% of the worlds seafloor is unmapped so its always part of Nautilus’ job to contribute as much as it can to the massive underwater cartography.  Our ocean is vast and still a mystery to us and with Nautilus’ high tech mapping systems in tow at least future scientists and venturers will have a better glimpse of what spots of the seafloor are most vital for research and discovery.
