Emerald Bay Project: Digital Monitoring of the Two 19th-century Submerged Barges

Summary

Excavated and recorded in 1989-1990, the two 19th-century submerged barges of the Emerald Bay require continuous attention and monitoring. Located along the south-west shoreline of the Lake Tahoe, California, the barges are of a considerable archaeological, historical, and recreational significance in the area. As they are also part of the interpreted shipwreck site within the California State Parks system, the goal of this 2014 survey was to perform a non-disturbance assessment of the site to support cultural monitoring, testing, and development of the digital technologies, 3D recording, and structure for motion (SfM) for historic preservation as applied to underwater environment.
