Directions in Deepwater Marine Archaeology: Using Technology to Grow and Synthesize Knowledge on the Deep Frontier.

Author(s): Eric Swanson; Tiffany Goldhamer; Ray Blackmon

Year: 2016

Summary

The increased use of remote sensing technology has allowed archaeology to go farther and deeper than ever before.  The capability of effecting real-time adaptations to Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) surveys and the increase in resolution of remote sensing equipment has provided scientists with a better opportunity to study and research what lies below the ocean’s surface.  It is with advancing technology that science and engineering has allowed for the better protection and understanding of the world’s precious cultural and natural resources.  These tools will only continue to develop in the direction of increased quality and quantity while new technologies are designed and developed to sample new types of data in the future.  This paper will discuss and exhibit the capabilities of technology used on a daily basis with an international survey company, from an archaeological perspective.
