Abstract : The Harbor Survey Assistance Program (HARSAP) is intended to provide a hydrographic mission to train personnel of, advise, and assist other governments in conducting hydrographic surveys of harbors and their approaches. It should be noted that the Naval Oceanographic Office does not conduct these surveys; the host nation in each case directs the operation, and our function is simply one of providing the assistance of experienced personnel and a limited amount of associated equipment. The results to date have been most gratifying, and it is anticipated that two of these programs will be conducted annually for several more years. (Author)
