Applying Advanced Imaging and Visualization Technology to the Battle of the Atlantic Shipwrecks between 20110531 and 20110821

In 2008, the Monitor National Marine Sanctuary (MNMS) commenced a multiyear project focusing on shipwreck sites associated with the Battle of the Atlantic. During WWII, this was the closest theater of war to the continental United States. Directly off the coast of North Carolina remains a collection of nearly 200 shipwrecks from one of the most significant battles in one of the most historic wars in world history. In previous years, MNMS and partners have collected data and completed archaeological surveys of four sites. Additionally, with OER support, the 2009 field season conducted a multibeam sonar and ROV survey to discover and document previously unknown deep-water shipwrecks. Several targets were identified, which would benefit from more detailed characterization using advanced imaging technology.
