Regional Bathymetric Map To update the bathymetry map of the Southwest Pacific region, which was originally compiled and hand drafted in 1983. In 1983 SOPAC produced a geophysical atlas of the South Pacific on a scale of 1: 6442 192, with contour intervals of 500m. This bathymetry chart has been extremely popular, with some 10 000 prints, from two print editions, in circulation. The present map is hand drawn and includes the Southwest Pacific region only. Since the production of this map SOPAC has acquired in its deepsea database, an enormous amount of data including bathymetric information from cruises and surveys in the region. In addition to these, SOPAC has acquired bathymetric data for the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of the Marshall Islands, which are both located in the North Pacific region. Consequently, an upgrade of the current chart is both timely and appropriate. It is envisaged that the upgrade will be digital and will include the northern parts of the Pacific as well.
