PTT Grant MT-2210-03-NC-08, The Use of Multibeam Swath Bathymetry for the Identification and Assessment of Underwater Archaeological Sites, Dr. Roger D. Flood, Professor, Marine Sciences Research Center Stony Brook University. This project was a two-phase approach to evaluating the use of multibeam swath bathymetry as a new tool for underwater archeology.
The first phase entailed fieldwork to examine suspected archeological sites on the bottom of the Hudson River recently identified during the NYS-DEC multibeam survey.
The second phase of the proposed project entailed discussing the methods with other workers in the Hudson River and elsewhere in order to review and analyze the study results and to review our experience in the use of multibeam data derived from hydrographic or other surveys to suit archeological needs.
