UHM Marine Option Program Students Recast and Preserve the History Found in Shipwrecks
The maps the students create will help state and federal agencies monitor the sites and protect them from looters, preserving their place in history.
Students of the Marine Option Program at the University of Hawaii help recast and preserve the history found in shipwrecks. "The annual Maritime Archaeology Survey Techniques course (MAST) is a terrific opportunity for Marine Option Program (MOP) students to work alongside professionals in the field," says Jeff Kuwabara, Manoa MOP Coordinator and Co-Instructor of the 2 week class. More information on the MOP divers had been featured in the September 2014 issue of Popular Science. The online article can be found here:
