  • The Submerged Sites Education & Archaeological Stewardship (SSEAS) program trains sport divers in the methods of non-disturbance archaeological recording and then gives these trained divers a mission. The mission focuses on investigating sites in NOAA’s Automated Wredk and Obstruction Information System (AWOIS) with the goal of identifying possible historic shipwrecks and other submerged cultural sites. SSEAS divers are trained to recognize historic shipwrecks and cultural sites, to record the site using photography and hand-drawn site plans, and to fill out Florida Master Site File recording forms. SSEAS divers also are asked to help monitor the State of Florida's Underwater Archaeological Preserve sites as part of their on-going management.
