Secret Hydrographic Surveys in the Spratly Islands
David Hancox & Victor Prescott
This is a history of the charting of marine features in an area known as the Dangerous Ground in the South China Sea. For some time mariners doubted the existence of some of the reefs, banks and shoals, originally charted in the 19th century. A hundred years later, in the years preceding World War II, British and Japanese surveyors carried out their own secret research in the area to determine the true nature of the area.
