Petersburg meeting, a first digital bathymetric
compilation portraying the Arctic Ocean seafloor was completed and released to the public (Jakobsson et al., 2000).
survey, on the other hand, was conducted to estimate the amount of material to be removed and specify the areas that must be given focus during the clean-up, Ilao added.
(http://www.atsb.gov.au/publications/2014/bathymetric-survey-mh370.aspx) Mapping the ocean floor through Bathymetric
data, as with the German research vessel Polarstern with its multibeam echo sounding system, was nowhere near enough, however, to develop a useful, three-dimensional model of the seafloor: "The ocean south of the 60th parallel extends over an area of some 21 million square kilometres and is therefore around 60 times as large as the Federal Republic of Germany," Erik Arndt said.

A look at bathymetric
charts tacked up inside the observatory explains the scientists' concern.
survey reveals a large scar on the side of the mid-Atlantic ridge at 26.5 [degrees] N latitude, about 3,000 meters below the surface of the ocean.
