Download Oceans Odyssey: Deep-Sea Shipwrecks in the English Channel, PDF

In ten papers Odyssey Marine Exploration provides the know-how, method and archaeological effects from 4 deep-sea shipwrecks and one significant survey carried out among 2003 and 2008. The websites lie past territorial waters in depths of as much as 820 metres off southeastern the United States and within the Straits of Gibraltar and the English Channel. solely recorded utilizing robot know-how within the kind of a Remotely-Operated motor vehicle, the wrecks variety from the foremost Royal military warships HMS Sussex (1694) and the original, 100-gun, quality HMS Victory (1744)to the steamship SS Republic (1865) and a mid-19th century service provider vessel with a shipment of British porcelain. Their learn finds that the way forward for deep-sea spoil study has arrived, but additionally that many websites are at critical chance from destruction from the offshore fishing undefined.

The net effect of pits or cracks in the surface will be to smear out the details of the profile, particularly at the sharp fall of the H profile. 9, which compares a normal profile with one smeared out due to surface roughness. Such profiles should be used cautiously or eliminated for dating purposes.
