Russell, Vicki Farini, Columbia University discussed on Unexplainable



You know back then. They could only make really good guesses about what was in those gaps on the sea floor compared to today where we can really map the seafloor in detail. Right like you said we we've mapped what twenty. Yeah currently and like this is a really recent development like even in two thousand seventeen only six percent of the seafloor was mapped by modern standards. Russell you're saying like fourteen percent of the ocean floor has been mapped. In the last four years yes and six percent of the ocean floor was mapped in all of human history before that yet. So we're really like speeding up. Could we map the whole thing soon. I think it's realistic to expect a map of the sea floor in our lifetimes for sure. So i spoke to vicki farini. She's a senior research scientist at columbia university. Where marie tharp did her work..
