The seafloor is no longer a pristine environment. From the shallow continental shelves to the deep ocean floor, it is visited regularly by sampling devices, autonomous instruments and human beings. Cables are laid, structures placed, waste dumped; shipwrecks and lost equipment all inevitably finish up on the ocean floor.

This unique collection of papers, presented earlier this year at the SUT–s international conference Man–Made Objects on the Seafloor, covers a diverse selection of topics from around the world, ranging from the mid–Atlantic to the Sunda Straits. The application of technologies, equipment, methods and reasoning to areas as varied as artificial reefs, seafloor autonomous research stations, submarine telecommunication cables, subsea pipelines, radiological surveys, deepwater trawling, wreck exploration, decommissioning and mine warfare makes this 195–page volume a must for marine scientists, engineers and all those wishing a better understanding of Man–s activities in the marine environment. Includes 80 figures and tables.
