Summary

The clear, fresh waters of Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary offer an ideal testing ground for acoustic and light-based imaging systems. During the 2016 field season, Thunder Bay researchers conducted several field operations to acquire, process, and compare side scan sonar, multibeam sonar, laser-scanner, and photogrammetric data at numerous archaeological shipwreck sites. The resulting analysis provided valuable insights into this array of remote sensing systems in terms of their ability to capture archaeological detail versus operational and logistical considerations such as ease of use, complexity of operation, time of acquisition, and physical limitations. Understanding the relationship between such factors will better allow project managers to select and prioritize remote sensing applications, seek and leverage partnerships, and optimize available technological systems.
