The Applications of Recent Advances in Underwater Detection and Survey Techniques to Underwater Archaeology

Conference held in Bodrum, Turkey on 3-7 May-2004. The aim of the congress was to focus on recent advances in underwater detection and surveillance techniques that apply to the location and inspection of shipwrecks and their cargoes lying on or below the seabed. In particular, the latest developments in underwater acoustics, magnetic, and optical techniques, including methods employed in mine countermeasures, have direct application to underwater archaeology. Here we provide a forum of researches from acoustics, mine countermeasures and underwater archaeology to exchange ideas and explore future challenges in the application and implementation of new technologies to underwater archaeology.
