The Secretariat of the International Seabed Authority (ISA) is accepting proposals for consultancy services to draft a report on oceanographic assessment using scientific data in ISA’s DeepData database.

The consultancy will aim to describe the dynamic oceanographic processes at global/regional scales and improve existing oceanographic models for the international seabed area (the Area).

The consultant should have the requisite background in deep-sea scientific research and physical/chemical oceanography in order to review oceanographic data submitted by ISA contractors to the ISA DeepData database, and prepare an assessment and recommendations to improve data collection.

Applications should be submitted to no later than 10 November 2022.
