Recent Developments at the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary
Lake Superior Hall, NOAA-GLERL - 4840 South State


Sponsored by: NOAA-GLERL
Speaker: Russ Green, Deputy Superintendent, Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, Alpena, MI

The Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary (TBNMS) is the thirteenth national marine sanctuary in a system that extends from American Samoa to Massachusetts. The Sanctuary was established to protect a nationally significant collection of shipwrecks, spanning 150 years of Great Lakes shipping history. TBNMS works with a wide range of technology and partners to locate and document historic shipwrecks in northern Lake Huron. Since its designation in 2000, the sanctuary has also acquired in-house resources that help facilitate both cultural and natural resource research and management. Russ Green will discuss recent fieldwork at the sanctuary, with a focus on technology, partners, operations, outreach, and opportunities that may be of interest to Great Lakes researchers.
