Abstract: The undersea feature names shown on sheets and products of GEBCO and Regional International Bathymetric Charts (IBC) projects, and on international (INT) nautical charts are selected by the GEBCO Sub-Committee on Undersea Feature Names (SCUFN). The role of SCUFN is to maintain and make available undersea feature names information in the form of a digital gazetteer. SCUFN meets once a year to define the nomenclature used for undersea features, review naming guidelines and to consider and decide on names which have been submitted to the Sub-Committee. The Secretariat of SCUFN is at the International Hydrographic Bureau, Monaco, where the gazetteer database is maintained. The meeting in Wellington is the 25th SCUFN meeting and is jointly hosted by the New Zealand Geographic Board Ngâ Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa (NZGB, http://www.linz.govt.nz/placenames), Land Information New Zealand (LINZ, www.linz.govt.nz) and GNS Science (www.gns.cri.nz) in Wellington, New Zealand. The meeting will be held at the LINZ office in central Wellington. (auth)
