Swath bathymetric mapping of the entire EEZ has been undertaken. ~5,73,000 sq km (~30%) of the deep-water regions of the EEZ beyond 500 m water depth has been completed. Some of the significant observations include the presence of channel-levée systems between Ninety Degree East Ridge and the Andaman Trench, two Seamounts off Lakshadweep and pockmarks on the seabed off-Goa. About 14,300 sq.km, off Goa, Bombay High, Karnataka and Cuddore have been completed.
