Future management of preserving the site

The wreck site is endangered by natural forces as well as by human activities. Before any steps to preserve the site can be taken, all the different destructive factors have to be analysed. We must carefully study the damages caused by the shipworm, fishermen, leisure divers, and dynamic coastal processes. In addition to this, we must study the construction impact. By installing a special datalogger on the site, we hope to get enough information to make a plan to preserve the wreck. When the research work is complete, the wreck will be covered with a protective special geo-fleece or sandbags.
