dc.description.abstract This is a dissertation which has been presented on a qualitative research exercise that has been carried out as part of the curriculum of the Master of Business Administration in Management of Technology degree programme at the University of Moratuwa. The Article 76 and Annex II of the Third United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea have given complex formulae to calculate the Outer edge of the Continental Shelf for which a comprehensive Seismic and Hydrographic survey is essential. The Bay of Bengal Fan, its significance and specific method used for the countries south of Bay of Bengal is described in detail. Since the survey needs to have the state of the art technology in the Seismology and Hydrography sector, the technologies that are to be used and the technology transfer mechanism are given in the literature review including the factors influencing the technology transfer. The research has found the information required for the preparation of the submission, technologies required to gather those information, identified the technologies already possessed by organisations in Sri Lanka and ascertained the technology gap between the required and available technologies. Then the research has found the components of technology that needs to be transferred and the sources that are capable in transferring those components. The research also concludes the findings and makes recommendations including an action plan. Further research areas also given at the end to continue study in this area in the future. en_US
