Geology Marine

Exploring the earth's resources and national treasures in the ocean

Marine geological activities are carried out to collect information on the surface and subsurface geology of the seabed, bathymetry (depth of the seabed), mineral and aggregate sources, and sediment deposits in the coastal and offshore zones. It is very important in the design and implementation of the development of the coastal zone and the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the State up to the continental shelf offshore zone.

Malaysia is a maritime country that has a water area of 556.285 square kilometres, a coastline of 4.492 kilometres, and as many as 1007 islands. The maritime treasures of Malaysia's coastal zone have not been extensively explored. Inputs regarding the geology and mineral resources of the coastal and offshore areas are one of the most important inputs in designing the development of the coastal zone.

  • Sea Sand Resource Study

The study included the collection of geophysical data, sampling of surface and subsurface sediments, current data, and the natural environment, including the acquisition of coastal geology data. In addition, a study on the impact of sand mines on the surroundings and coastline was also carried out to complete information on the sources of sea sand.

  • Geological Mapping for Continental Shelf Limit Claim

The study to collect information on continental shelf marine geology in Malaysian waters in the South China Sea is related to technical and legislative requirements of the Article 76 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

  • Geological Mapping of Marine Islands and Shallow Waters

Collect detailed marine geological information (rock and sediment types; profiles and structures; geochemistry).
