    Opportunities and Obligations Cultural and historic properties like underwater archaeological sites are non-renewable resources which often possess unique information about the past. Ruins of submerged Underwater archaeology book appear to exist at several places. Recent discoveries in the Lake Atitlan basin of the south highlands of Guatemala add to the picture of geological activity that produced a crisis in southern Mesoamerican culture history. In the field of archaeology, developments take place from time to time. Image via Maritime Archaeology Trust Submerged 11 meters below the Solent, just off the Isle of Wight, this site was only discovered when a lobster was spotted chucking stone worked flints from its burrow. Magnetometry [33] can be used to locate metal remains such as metal shipwrecksanchors and cannon.

    Initially associated with historic shipwreck Underwater archaeology book, it is increasingly clear that the methods and uses of underwater archaeology are equally applicable to a wide variety of resources, including aviation properties, submerged habitation sites, historic landings and anchorages, etc. Underwater photography can also be conducted from these submarines which assists the recording process. For a marine site, while some form of working platform typically a boat or ship is often needed, shore-based activities are common. Lothrop worked at a site, Chukumuk, that was partly submerged in Lake Atitlan. A working platform for underwater archeology needs to be equipped to provide for the delivery of air for example, recompression and medical facilities, or specialist remote sensing equipment, analysis of archaeological results, support for activities being undertaken in the water, storage of supplies, facilities for conservation for any items recovered from the water, as well as accommodation for workers.

    While running a digging project on a certain site he may need to negotiate with the Underwater archaeology book people. Sensitive sonarespecially side-scan sonar or multi-beam sonar [32] may be used to image an underwater site. Therefore, just like terrestrial archaeologists working for the State or with contract firms, underwater archaeologists have the necessary education, appropriate credentials, and hold valid licenses from the Office of the State Archaeologist to conduct work in Minnesota. In addition it can be difficult to allow access to the results of the archaeological research as underwater sites do not provide good outreach possibilities or access for the general public.
