This topic will provide students the opportunity to study marine geophysics for archaeology in both theoretical and practical application. The topic will be delivered with specialist support from Dr Paul Baggaley who has over a decade of experience in developing the industry-leading geophysics team for Wessex Archaeology (Paul and his team have carried out over 100 maritime archaeology projects in the United Kingdom). Students will benefit from lectures and will be introduced to data processing and interpretation, which they will carry out under supervision. Students will become familiar with a professional workflow and specialist software familiarization. Students will also participate in an offshore survey (weather dependent) to acquire data over a historic shipwreck. They will then have the opportunity to review and interpret that data as part of this intensive four-day practicum.

Getting credit for a short course
Flinders University Students receive 4.5 units of credit towards their degree.
Overseas Participants receive a Certificate of Achievement which states that the short course is equivalent to the completion of the Flinders University topic ARCH8156, a 4.5-unit topic. Participants should be able to use this to negotiate their own credit transfer with their home institution.
Non-Flinders University Australian Students receive a Certificate of Achievement which states that the short course is equivalent to the completion of the Flinders University topic ARCH8156. You should be able to receive credit at your home institution equivalent to the value of a 4.5-unit Flinders University graduate topic. If you wish to have this unit of study credited to your home university degree, you should check that the Certificate of Achievement will suffice for the purpose, as we will be unable to issue an academic transcript.
