There is so, so much we don't know about the ocean. Getting little 'bots down there to map and record and study sounds like a great idea. We literally have better maps of the moon than we do of the ocean floor.
I think you might be surprised at well we have the ocean floor mapped, although most of that mapping is classified.

I live near the facility and agency that does that very thing.
