Maritime Archaeology & Offshore Wind Energy

Posted by MRD Monday, February 23, 2015 - 3:30pm

Here's a link to an interesting article about archaeology in advance of the wind turbine—the future of coastal renewable energy resources.  Here in South Carolina we recently joined forces with several institutions to undertake study of habitats, paleolandscapes, and shipwrecks in potential Wind Energy Areas (WEA) off Myrtle Beach and Georgetown. We’ll post more information about the project as we gear  up in the coming months.
