Source of the Week: Remote Sensing

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here are some pictures from a day of remote sensing on the wreck of the wooden steamer Montana, wrecked in 65′ of water off Alpena, Michigan. Many thanks to NOAA’s Coast Survey team for taking us out on S1-211 (yeah, that’s what they call it) as well as the Sea Cadets on the Pride of Michigan. (For more on their stellar program see here.) Demonstrations of a remotely operated vehicle (ROV), side-scan sonar and multi-beam sonar were fantastic. It’s great to get out of the archives and into the field. As one day on the water makes clear, studying shipwrecks is impossible without seeing them on the contemporary maritime landscape.
