Author: Casserley, TR
Abstract: NOAA's National Marine Sanctuaries Maritime Heritage Program is committed to preserving historical, cultural and archaeological resources within the National Marine Sanctuaries. This paper will focus on the Maritime Heritage Program's efforts to protect, promote and explore our nation's maritime heritage through a national program embracing heritage resources in our evolving coastal, marine and Great Lakes stewardship. It will explore the diving technologies and methodologies utilized to document maritime heritage resources in the National Marine Sanctuaries unique and challenging environments from the historic whaling shipwrecks of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands to the intact schooners of the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The United States became a world power through its maritime commerce and naval strength. Documenting and protecting shipwreck material remains helps us rediscover that proud legacy by forming a physical connection with our past. Through the Maritime Heritage Program, NOAA's National Marine Sanctuaries confirm their commitment to preserve our rich maritime heritage not only for today, but also for future generations.
