Thank you so much to all who participated in the Global Deep Sea Capacity Survey. This assessment is the broadest survey on current capabilities to explore and study the deep sea ever conducted, including more than 120 countries, of which 100 were developing economies and Small Island Developing States. The team has been hard at work analyzing the data, and we're excited to release the full results in early April. Your insights and feedback have been essential to an assessment that we believe will be transformative for the global ocean exploration community.
Please join the Ocean Discovery League team at the 2022 Ocean Sciences Meeting on February 24 at 11am-Noon ET (UTC-5) to introduce the assessment, including methods and a sneak peek at the high-level and regional findings ahead of the publication of the report in early April. You can access the event here after registering for OSM: https://bit.ly/3oMQXVe. There will be more events and opportunities to review the results and engage with the research team in the coming months.
