International Bathymetric Chart of the Southern Ocean (IBCSO) Expert Group

Terms of Reference

The objective of the International Bathymetric Chart of the Southern Ocean program is to gain better knowledge of the sea floor topography in the Southern Ocean. For that reason the IBCSO group collects and compiles bathymetric data from hydrographic offices, scientific institutions and data centers to create the first regional digital bathymetric model that covers all circum-Antarctic waters.
