A Model And Tools For Investigating The Monterrey Shipwrecks


Work on the Monterrey shipwrecks, conducted from the NOAA ship Okeanos Explorer and the Ocean Exploration Trust vessel E/V Nautilus, has used some of the most advanced remotely operated vehicles and communication systems ever designed for exploring the deep ocean.  Both ships use telepresence as their operational model to enable shore-based scientists to engage in live interdisciplinary scientific exploration over the internet. This not only raises the intellectual capital of the project by increasing the number of participating archaeologists and ocean scientists, it serves as a highly effective outreach tool reaching a world-wide public audience.  This has proven to be an effective model for collaborative interdisciplinary scientific study of the Monterrey shipwrecks.
