This day was dedicated to collecting the pressure sensors and camera recording installed on the first day of field survey. Pictures below show the collection of pressure sensors at the three sites, which are Thilawa port site (Figure 18), Excel River View Hotel site (Figure 19 – left image), and Yangon Port site (Figure 19 – right image). Figure 19 center image shows the camera installed at Excel River View Hotel site. All the observations were collected except for the Thilawa port site pressure sensor. Unfortunately, the pressure sensor deployed at Thilawa Port site was lost.

After the collection of the observations from pressure sensors and camera, an introduction and brief tutorial of usage of pressure and camera for collecting data of tidal observations by Dr. Shimozono and Mr. Kambala to YTU counterparts was done. The YTU counterpart who had the brief introduction were Dr. Zin Marlar Tint San and three Master’s students Suwai Mai Thin, Chit Bo Bo Win, and Ye Thu Aung.
