Research & Projects
Utilizing a unique specialty in deep and technical diving, the Cambrian Foundation has conducted variety of data collection projects for environmental scientists, marine geologists, archaeologists, and historians, as well as local, state, and federal agencies in many corners of the world. Our dedicated group of expert research divers takes the lead in global research expeditions and conservation projects in a variety of underwater environments. Some of these past projects include a nine year collaboration with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the US Navy on America’s most historical shipwreck, USS Monitor; submerged cave survey and mapping in Florida, Mexico, and Bermuda; geologic sampling at the bottom of the Great Blue Hole of Belize; documenting new species in the Floridan aquifer; conducting environmental impact assessments on the shipwrecks of World War II in Ironbottom Sound/Guadalcanal; archaeological recovery and mapping of the SS Commodore offshore of Ponce Inlet, FL, and many more.
