Nice translation for "khoanh vùng". I can't event come up with a better one myself (khoanh vùng literally means someone drawing a circle on a map, in this case, a search area).

Thanks, that was the hardest word on the list to translate. In this case I am familiar with mountaineering and rescue operations, so I could apply that knowledge here.
