Join us for a presentation sponsored by NOAA Ocean Exploration! Speakers: Dr. Katy Croff Bell, President & Founder, Ocean Discovery League and Maud Quinzin, Capacity Assessment Project Manager, Ocean Discovery League Summary: Exploration and research in the 93% of our planet’s ocean that lies deeper than 200 m is typically conducted by only a handful of countries with the required financial and personnel resources. But just how many countries actually have the capacity to access and work in the deep ocean? This knowledge is essential to make deep-sea exploration and science more inclusive and equitable. The Global Deep Sea Capacity Assessment is a baseline survey of the technical and human capacity for deep sea science and exploration in every coastal nation with deep waters (200m+) around the world. The assessment, conducted throughout 2021, was led by Dr. Katy Croff Bell, National Geographic Explorer and Founder of Ocean Discovery League. This assessment is the broadest survey ever conducted on current capabilities to explore and study the deep sea, including more than 120 countries, of which 100 were developing economies and Small Island Developing States. In addition to the survey responses, the results include detailed research conducted by a global team of research assistants. Closed captioning will be provided.
