A free webinar session at the 29th International Submerged Lands Management Conference will address cultural resources. This session will cover issues surrounding the assessment of injury and damage to submerged cultural resources from oil or chemical spills, groundings, looting or any other man-made impact. The speakers will discuss the various methodologies that are used to conduct these assessments, the presence or absence of laws at the federal or state levels, and the legal requirements for assessment data to be used in pursuing legal action.
During the session, attendees will hear from four national experts in the field of cultural resource damage assessment: Mr. Martin McAllister, MA, RPS and Dr. Larry Murphy, RPA who are leading consulting archaeologists and trainers in the field of archaeological damage assessment; Mr. David Alberg, Superintendent of the Monitor National Marine Sanctuary and Ole Varmer, and International Law attorney with the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration.
Public land managers, archaeologists, attorneys or other cultural resource professionals will not want to miss this session. It is completely free of charge and offers CEUs for attorneys.
The session is 3:00 to 4:30 PM EST on November 18th, 2010. Please follow the link below to register:
