The MAREANO programme is cross-discipline and multi-institutional and the mapping is carried out in cooperation between the Norwegian Mapping Authority, the Geological Survey of Norway (NGU) and the Institute of Marine Research (IMR).

The mapping of the geological, biological and chemical environment of the seabed will be carried out in areas where the MAREANO programme has high-resolution bathymetric charts based on measurements administered by the Norwegian Mapping Authority. The mapping of the geological, biological and chemical environment of the seabed is carried out by using multiple types of tools such as bottom grabs, multicore samplers, beam trawls, epibenthic sleds, towed HD video footage of the seabed, as well as bottom penetrating echo sounder and CTDs/water collectors.
