• A new method for underwater archaeological surveying using sensors and unmanned platforms 

      Ødegård, Øyvind; Sørensen, Asgeir Johan; Hansen, Roy Edgar; Ludvigsen, Martin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      As most of the world’s oceans are inaccessible to diving archaeologists, we must rely on advanced underwater technology and marine robotics to explore, map and investigate ship wrecks in these areas. New sensors and unmanned ...
    • Archaeological use of Synthetic Aperture Sonar on deepwater wreck sites in Skagerrak 

      Ødegård, Øyvind; Hansen, Roy Edgar; Singh, Hanumant; Maarleveld, Thijs (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Marine archaeological surveying in deep waters has so far been challenging, mainly due to operational and technological constraints. The standard tool has been Side Scan Sonar (SSS) towed behind a surface vessel. Synthetic ...
    • Mapping the Historical Shipwreck Figaro in the High Arctic Using Underwater Sensor-Carrying Robots 

      Mogstad, Aksel Alstad; Ødegård, Øyvind; Nornes, Stein Melvær; Ludvigsen, Martin; Johnsen, Geir; Sørensen, Asgeir Johan; Berge, Jørgen (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      In 2007, a possible wreck site was discovered in Trygghamna, Isfjorden, Svalbard by the Norwegian Hydrographic Service. Using (1) a REMUS 100 autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) equipped with a sidescan sonar (SSS) and (2) ...
    • Sensing Archaeology in the North: The Use of Non-Destructive Geophysical and Remote Sensing Methods in Archaeology in Scandinavian and North Atlantic Territories 

      Cuenca-Garcia, Carmen; Risbøl, Ole; Bates, Richard; Stamnes, Arne Anderson; Skoglund, Fredrik; Ødegård, Øyvind; Viberg, Andreas; Koivisto, Satu; Fuglsang, Mikkel; Gabler, Manuel; Schlosser Mauritsen, Esben; Perttola, Wesa; Solem, Dag-Øyvind (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      In August 2018, a group of experts working with terrestrial/marine geophysics and remote sensing methods to explore archaeological sites in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Scotland and Sweden gathered together for the first time ...
    • Sensor-Carrying Platforms 

      Sørensen, Asgeir Johan; Ludvigsen, Martin; Norgren, Petter; Ødegård, Øyvind; Cottier, Finlo Robert (Chapter, 2020)
      Information and communication technology, autonomy, and miniaturization in terms of, for example, microelectromechanical systems are enabling technologies with significant impact on the development of sensors, sensor-carrying ...
    • Towards Autonomous Operations and Systems in Marine Archaeology 

      Ødegård, Øyvind (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:203, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
      A large part of our common cultural heritage, ranging from submerged prehistoric landscapes to modern steel wrecks, lies on the seabed. For centuries they have remained protected by depth and remoteness, but are now under ...
    • Underwater hyperspectral imaging: a new tool for marine archaeology 

      Ødegård, Øyvind; Mogstad, Aksel Alstad; Johnsen, Geir; Sørensen, Asgeir Johan; Ludvigsen, Martin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      By applying an underwater hyperspectral imager (UHI) to a selection of archaeological artifacts, we have found spectral signatures that are representative of materials likely to be present at wreck sites. By successfully ...
