The search for MH370

The hunt for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is unprecedented. The massive search area which is remote and previously unmapped, the complex underwater terrain and extreme depths make for a search unlike anything seen before.

This project looked at the progress of the search over time and the technology used until. The current 120,000 sq km area west of Australia was completed in January 2016 with no sign of the missing jet.
