Summary

Between March, 2013, and October, 2014, the National Park Service Submerged Resources Center and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s Office of Renewable Energy Programs collaborated on a marine magnetic research and testing initiative resulting in the development of a custom ArcGIS python toolbox for visualizing and assessing marine magnetic survey data used to identify submerged cultural material. These tools, and the mathematical models driving them, were applied in numerous survey planning, data analysis, data interpretation, and survey assessment functions by both agencies during the 2014 field season. The results of these applications, presented as case studies, are discussed as they relate to new approaches in magnetic survey planning, visualization, interpretation, and survey coverage assessment and their implications for government resource management.
