After a four-month pause, the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is again underway.

The New York Times reports that the next phase of the search will use "side-scan sonar, synthetic aperture sonar, multibeam echo sounders and video cameras" in hopes of finding the plane's wreckage in the Indian Ocean. The new phase of the search began on Monday, according to a statement from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.
