About the webinar:

What is Lakebed 2030?

It’s a regional initiative to map the Great Lakes at high-resolution.

More specifically, it’s an effort to address the need for high-resolution bathymetry and bathymetry-derived products. The initiative is targeting 2030 as the year when the region will be on track for comprehensive Great Lakes mapping.

Bathymetry and related products will support decision making and research in sediment mapping, environmental modeling, water level variation, ecosystem management, property protection, maritime archaeological preservation, and human health.

One of the initiative’s immediate goals is to create a publicly available bathymetric data discovery portal to make it easy to visualize and access maps, images, and data of the lakefloor.

This webinar is put on by the Great Lakes Bottom Mapping Working Group and the Great Lakes Observing System.
