FY09 Ocean Exploration Omnibus - Marine Archaeology

Proposals for exploration and discovery of significant maritime heritage sites are the priority.

Submerged, previously subaerial, landscapes, shipwrecks, and other maritime cultural sites are typical focus subjects of the program.

Proposals will emphasize the early phases of field


searching, locating, evaluating or inventorying sites.

This Announcement does not invite proposals to support later phases of archaeological research, such as intensive site excavations, and major conservation projects.

All applicants must convincingly describe:
The archaeological significance of their site(s), and their importance to human history; how their research fits within the realm of exploration; why their methodologies are innovative and make the most economical use of current marine technology.

OE is seeking pre-proposals and full proposals to support its mission, consistent with NOAA's Strategic Plan (http://www.nrc.noaa.gov), to search, investigate, and document marine archaeological resources.
