Deep Seabed Mining
The International Seabed Authority’s third set of meetings held in Kingston, Jamaica wrapped up last week with little fanfare and fewer decisions. The Ocean Foundation participated in the meetings for the third time this year, continuing to speak with delegates on our key goals.
With 80% of the seabed unmapped, Deep Seabed Mining poses a wide array of threats to Underwater Cultural Heritage in the ocean.

The technical and ethical uncertainties around climate geoengineering are numerous in both carbon dioxide removal and solar radiation modification
Solar Radiation Modification (SRM) is a form of climate geoengineering that aims to increase the amount of sunlight reflected back into space – to reverse the warming of the planet.
Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) is a form of climate geoengineering that seeks to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
The planet is getting closer to exceeding the global climate target. Because of this, there has been an increased focus on climate geoengineering.

The Ocean Foundation proudly announces a two-year partnership with the Lloyd’s Register Foundation (LRF), an independent global charity working to engineer a safer world.
We’re sharing key moments from the meetings on DSM, including Underwater Cultural Heritage updates, the “what-if” discussion, and a check-in on TOF’s goals.
DSM is a potential commercial industry attempting to mine mineral deposits from the seafloor. But this mining is posed to destroy an interconnected ecosystem: the deep ocean.
