to highlight the importance of preserving the marine environment through the
use of sound environmental practices, to raise awareness of the art and science of
marine salvage, and to promote careers in the salvage and maritime industries.
Experimental science or engineering projects involving marine sciences that
were conducted in 2015 at the high school or undergraduate college level are eligible.
Projects should focus on one of the following broad marine science areas: Marine
Environmental Care, Naval Architecture, Marine Engineering, Ocean Engineering,
Meteorology, Underwater Robotics, Air Emissions from Ships, Alternative Fuel
Supplies for Ships, Oil and Chemical Spill Remediation, Offshore Well Control,
Diving Systems, Marine Biology, Marine Ecosystems, Marine Microorganisms,
Ship Design, Ship Breaking, Recovery of Sunken Ships, Cargo, Fuel or Pollutants,
related Marine Salvage or Marine Environmental projects.
Project abstracts of 300 words or less and a technical paper describing the
project were accepted from September 1, 2015-October 1, 2015. Winners will
