As of February 14, according to Department of Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar, data-gathering activities relevant to bathymetric
or depth measurement survey and water quality test for both Manila Bay and Navotas River have already been completed.

Monitoring and control instrument would have automatic water level recorders, vibrating wire piezometers, reactivation of the existing water level observation wells, acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) for a bathymetric
survey, permanent discharge measurement station using horizontal acoustic Doppler profiler (H-ADCP), at Bukkur gorge (two numbers), CCTV cameras and telecommunication.
Scientific conclusions based on sparse bathymetric
information should be re-examined and refined.
The Grant Offer will support a pilot project onMultibeam Bathymetric
mappingof identified sites in Tyre and Sidon.
, side scan sonar, reflection and refraction surveys, and sub-bottom profiling will also be conducted to assist in developing an integrated site model.
* Today, when scientists map the ocean floor, they use large, heavy bathymetric
lidar carried by manned aircraft to capture data, which is then processed after the fact.
The update stated that a complete bathymetric
survey is needed before a sidescan sonar work that will locate the Boeing 777 could commence.
4 and join the search efforts to assist in the bathymetric
survey process," said Hishammuddin Hussein, who was the acting transport minister when the Malaysian Airlines jetliner got missing on March 8, Xinhua reported.
The Chinese survey ship, Zhu Kezhen, was conducting a bathymetric
survey -- or mapping of the ocean floor -- to help experts determine how to carry out the next stage of the search on the previously unmapped ocean seabed.
It has a wide geographic and bathymetric
range of distribution, found from California to Peru and extends down to 65 m deep.
