Hello USS Monitor Fans!
We have another fantastic lecture coming up in our Civil War Lecture Series! If you are able, please join us at The Mariners’ Museum and Park on Saturday Nov 12 from 2:30-3:30 for “3-D Mapping of Shipwreck Sites” presented by William Sassorossi, a NOAA Maritime Archaeologist.
3-D mapping technologies can be used to study the USS Monitor‘s wreck site, and explore other shipwrecks without the scuba gear! Sassorossi will discuss all of this, and the ongoing work within the Monitor National Marine Sanctuary and at other wreck sites within the Graveyard of the Atlantic using 3-D imagining techniques.
Will Sassorossi is a Master’s graduate of East Carolina University’s Maritime Studies Program, focusing on WWII era commercial vessels converted for military use sunk off the North Carolina coast. In 2013 and 2014, Will worked with the Monitor National Marine Sanctuary in various capacities assisting with the Battle of the Atlantic expeditions.
We hope to see you there!
