  • Marine archeology in the Gulf of Khambhat - earlier known as Gulf of Cambay - centers on findings made in December 2000 by the National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT). NIOT came across palaeo river channels in the sea. These were seen by the scientists involved to be the extension of the present day major rivers of the area. In a similar marine survey, in a Coastal Research Ship during 1999-2000 when Dr S Badrinaryan was the Chief Scientist, several unusual frames of Side Scan Sonar images were encountered. These had square and rectangular features in an arranged geometric fashion which are not expected by the scientist in the marine domain. As per the scientist involved such features are unlikely to be due to natural marine geological processes. This made the scientists suspect that human workmanship must have been involved here. The surveys were followed up in the following years and two palaeo channels of old rivers were discovered in the middle of the Khambhat area under 20-40m water depths, at a distance of about 20 km from the present day coast.

  • Arqueología submarina en el Golfo de Khambhat - antes conocido como Golfo de Cambay - centra su atención en los hallazgos encontrados en diciembre de 2000 por el Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Oceánica (NIOT) de la India. El NIOT se topó con cursos de ríos antiguos en el mar. Los científicos involucrados los interpretaron como la prolongación de los principales ríos actuales de la zona. En un sondeo marino similar, en un buque de investigación costera durante los años 1999-2000 cuando el Dr. S. Badrinaryan era científico jefe, fueron halladas varias estructuras inusuales en imágenes de sonar de barrido lateral. Éstas tenían características cuadrangulares y rectangulares en forma geométricamente dispuesta, las cuales no se esperan encontrar por los científicos en el entorno marino. En lo que refiere a los científicos involucrados es improbable que tales características se dieran por procesos geológicos marinos naturales. Esto hizo a los científicos sospechar que la mano del hombre debía estar implicada en este caso. En los años siguientes se sucedieron sondeos y dos cursos antiguos de ríos previos fueron descubiertos en medio del área de Khambhat a una profundidad de 20-40 metros bajo el agua, a una distancia aproximada de 20 km de la costa actual.
