Summary

Remote sensing in a marine environment has expanded quickly over the last decade, seeing the emergence of technology that was only dreamed of over a century ago (Verne 1870).  It is with the emergence and consistent operation of marine technology that we see innovative and dynamic use of sensors to discover methods that can help to explore and define the resources we discover and investigate.  Studies into the effect that the environment has on archaeological sites has been a particular focus that has grown over the last seven years.  A comprehensively parallel examination is the effect on which these sites have on their surrounding environment, and how this effect may be detected through passive remote sensing technology.  Development and use of this concept in technology can facilitate a greater area of study through exploring the effect that various materials and archaeological structures have on aquatic environments.
