Extractions: Uses The Micro ROV for Scientific Studies Proven in the study of Sharks of the Great White North, Whale Sharks, Atlantic Cod, and coral reefs, the VideoRay is a practical tool for scientists and biologists doing aquatic research. It can to go deep into frigid waters to places divers cannot or would prefer not to go. As shark filmer Larry Banbrick of the Discovery Channel Canada says, "When you're working in a hostile underwater environment like the high north, having the VideoRay act as a second pair of eyes is invaluable." For short or long term monitoring of most aquatic systems, the VideoRay is easy to control, small, non-invasive, and does not produce bubbles that scare fish. It is portable and requires a minimal power supply and no special mobilization. Video is produced in NTSC or PAL formats, and special high-resolution and wide-angle lense cameras are available.

Archaeology is the study of the human past. Its initial objective is the construction of cultural chronology. Its intermediate objective is the reconstruction of past lifeways. Its ultimate objective is the discovery of the processes which underlie and condition human behavior. Archaeology (and alternately Archeology) is a science well suited for anyone who enjoys biology, botany, geology, chemistry, history, psychology, art, and solving a great puzzle. It is not looting and robbing. Various countries have enacted laws and regulations to ensure that their legacies are not exported or destroyed. There are acts which intend to repatriate looted legacies. In the United States of America, many state governments are sensitive to the need for archaeological study and excavation when any development project state-sponsored or commercial uncovers evidence of historical human presence.

Science Applications International Corporation Using Technology to Scour Davy Jones' Locker The sea, any marine archeologist (or buccaneer) will tell you, guards its secrets jealously. First, one must locate a shipwreck and its associated artifacts. Once found, wrecks must be mapped and explored, and artifacts must be retrieved with extreme care. Some lost articles, when exposed to the air after resting safely in the abyss for hundreds or thousands of years, can turn to mush before you can growl "Look lively there, ye lubbers!" Finding soggy shipwrecks has gotten easier over the past fifty years. With the advent and refinement of scuba technology, they've come within easy reach of marine archeologists and of sport and commercial divers who enjoy a good wreck as much as the next swab. It has also helped modern-day scoundrels who, like the pirates of olde, think nothing of pocketing anything that's not nailed down, and even artifacts that are. How has technology expanded the archeologist's reach to ever deeper waters?

Have a look at the prehistoric underwater cave paintings of the Cosquer cave, with their surprising representations of the giant penguins, which inhabited the Mediterranean from the Straits of Gibraltar to southern Italy (in French only). Egypt : teams from the CNRS based at the Centre d'Etudes Alexandrines are studying the rich history of Alexandria, using both land and underwater excavations, archives, ancient maps and texts. Since 1994, submarine excavations have explored the sunken ruins at the foot of the Qaitbay Fort and wrecks of Greek and Roman ships in Alexandria Harbour. Fragments of colossal statues of three royal couples have been found along with a monumental door (site also in French).

Extractions: Description: Venture to underwater archeological sites off the shores of ancient Canaan and witness archaic artifacts that have been preserved by water for over 1000 years. Treasures such as remains of an ancient boat from the advanced Phoenician society (who greatly influenced written language and may have reached the Americas 2,000 years before Columbus) are among the many underwater discoveries. The magical qualities of water have preserved what would have otherwise been destroyed by the winds of time. Witness these preserved relics as we investigate the waters of the Holy Land. Tel Hazor in the Galilee, dating back to the Old Testament, is the world's largest Biblical archeological site containing artifacts that date back to the beginning of the 3rd millennium B.C. during the Bronze Age. This summer, Professor Ben-Tor of Hebrew University will return to Tel Hazor , where he was a part of the first excavations in the 1950's to explore what he is convinced will be one of the most important Biblical treasures ever unveiled. Archeologists will enter the Canaanite Royal Palace and journey through previously unexplored chambers of this magnificently preserved site. In addition, royal archives that were uncovered at

BBC - History - Marine Archeology The marine archaeologist, however, must beware of the sea as they try to preserveshipwrecks from the pounding waves This is the story of underwater archaeology http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/archaeology/marine/marine_1.shtml
Extractions: For the archaeologist on land, the main dangers come from land developers. The marine archaeologist, however, must beware of the sea as they try to preserve shipwrecks from the pounding waves. Each fragile wreck is a unique time capsule of our past: encrusted cannons, ancient wine bottles and other historical treasures. Treasures that the sea is loath to give up. This is the story of underwater archaeology... Underwater time capsules Those involved in a shipwreck may lose everything in the catastrophe, including perhaps their lives. But the remains of sunken vessels and their contents, even if broken up and scattered, provide future generations with unique windows into the past. Each site represents a moment frozen in time, and every item recovered from it is part of a vast three-dimensional archaeological jigsaw. Archaeologists know they can never complete it, but by analysing the evidence they find, and fitting it into the jigsaw's framework, they come ever closer to their goal of constructing a true picture of the ship before it became a wreck. Each has a special story to tell, and is therefore a fragile and irreplaceable microcosm of its times. Top

Extractions: Wreck diving is growing more and more popular in Britain. The thrill is seeing a ship that has lain undisturbed for decades - perhaps even centuries. A chance to explore what has been out of reach for so long. However, there are risks involved with diving. Unseen dangers abound. Then, there are the rules that must be obeyed such as respecting War Graves. Welcome to the world of the diver... The sheer quantity of wrecks is of course why wreck diving is the most popular activity of Britain's scuba divers. One of the problems that the divers encounter is poor visibility. However, the often poor "viz" ,as divers call the underwater visibility, only adds to their interest in wrecks. The viz in much of Britain's inshore waters can occasionally mean that you can't see your hand in front of your face mask. It is usually approximately about three metres but it is sometimes five. On exceptional days, it is 15 (excellent) and the rare 30 metres (fantastic!).
