Question
Dear Meisam

Which Marine instrument can be useful for measuring the ocean or sea height /depth?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
This is really outside my expertise.
As far as I know in the past the ocean depth was measured with a rope attached to a heavy weight. After the advent of radar technology, ocean depth is measured by sonar radar.
Unfortunately, I don't know any more about it.
