Scanning The Seabed
- Grain-Size Trend Analysis for the Determination of Non-Biogenic Sediment Transport Pathways on the Kwinte Bank (southern North Sea), in Relation to Sand Dredging. Poulos, Serafim E.; Ballay, Arnaud // Journal of Coastal Research;Nov2010 Supplement, p95
Grain-size trend analysis is applied to the determination of sediment transport pathways over the Kwinte Bank, southern North Sea; which had been subjected to intensive dredging, within the context of the environmental impact of dredging activities. On the basis of the results of grain-size...

- BURIED TREASURE. Dalgleish, Sharon // Ocean Life;2003, p10
The ocean floor is littered with the wrecks of ancient and modern ships. The ship's wreckage gives shelter to fish and other sea creatures. These wrecks give us clues about how people lived in the past.
- Costa Concordia's seafloor legacy. Druce, Victoria // New Scientist;9/21/2013, Vol. 219 Issue 2935, p6
The article reports on the September 2013 salvage of the Costa Concordia cruise ship which sunk near Italy in January 2012, focusing on efforts to minimize the environmental impacts of the salvage on the seabed and marine mammal habitats during the parbuckling method of righting the ship.
