Modeling Change: Quantifying Great Lakes Metal Shipwreck Degradation Using Structure from Motion 3D Imaging (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Caitlin N. Zant.

Anecdotally, divers report metal shipwrecks throughout the Great Lakes are deteriorating at a much faster rate than in the past. This accelerated deterioration has been attributed to invasive muscle colonization on submerged resources, but has never been systematically measured. The development and use of new 3D modeling technologies, such as Structure from Motion (SfM), provides the opportunity to analyze these changes in an innovative and analytic way. Using the SS Wisconsin as a testing...
