Summary

In the battle to preserve vulnerable historic maritime resources, recovery efforts after the unprecedented devastation of Superstorm Sandy highlighted a desperate need to locate, identify, and catalog the submerged resources of New Jersey. Today, resiliency undertakings, new development projects, plans to address rising sea levels and severe storms, have all encountered maritime archaeological resources.

With over 1,600 known historic shipwrecks crowding only 150 miles of Atlantic coastline, and a scant few dozen registered sites; old-school research and survey has been fused with cutting-edge data modeling, database management, and GIS tools, to protect the past from present hazards, and future threats
