Marine Archaeology Course

November 7-8, 2018.

Marine Archaeology integrates geology, geophysics, and archaeology to delineate, identify, and assess inundated archaeological sites, such as shipwrecks and prehistoric sites. This course is sponsored by the Offshore Site Investigation and Geotechnics (OSIG) Committee of the Society for Underwater Technology in the U.S. (SUT-US).

The course is focused for geoscientists, engineers, and managers who actively work, contract, or plan marine site investigation programs for exploration and/or field development. The two-day comprehensive course covers the fundamentals of archaeology, the regulatory environments in the United States and around the world, the potential for unanticipated discoveries, data acquisition, interpretation, risk management, and project planning. Incorporating four case studies, the class helps illustrate the potential outcomes of an archaeological or geophysical survey. Recognized experts in the field from a mix of energy, consulting, and service companies teach the class.
