The largest gathering of prominent scientists, archaeologists, oceanographers, engineers and authors including P.H. Nargeolet, world-renowned pioneer in the field of deep-sea exploration, and Pierette Simpson, author and survivor of the 1956 SS Andrea Doria shipwreck, will participate in the Inaugural International Marine Forensics Symposium, April 3-5, 2012 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center, National Harbor, Maryland.
The Symposium will mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, which occurred on April 15, 1912, and will feature technological breakthroughs and groundbreaking news specifically relating to the Titanic.
Highlighting the impact that technology has had in the field of underwater exploration, the symposium will also introduce a new comprehensive (over 15 years in the making) procedural manual, “Guidelines for Marine Forensic Investigations.” The manual outlines the correct processes for conducting successful marine forensic investigations. In addition, a “Student Day” program for students in grades 7 through college on April 5, will offer hands-on scientific experiments and discussions led by experts in the field of Marine Forensic Investigations.
