Abstract : The U. S. Naval Oceanographic Office, through the Harbor Survey Assistance Program (HARSAP), is aiding other nations in the surveying of ports and harbors. HARSAP provides specialized equipment and experienced hydrographic engineers to instruct and advise personnel from the host nation in hydrographic surveying techniques while they perform an actual hydrographic survey. Upon completion of a survey the personnel from the participating country have adequate skill and experience to conduct future surveys with only periodic advisory visits by a NAVOCEANO engineer.
