Preserving & Interpreting USS San Diego (Armored Cruiser No. 6)

This will be the third installment of the Levy Chair in Economic Geography AY 2020-2021 speaker series. The ocean floor is an important geographic and economic domain. Underwater cultural resources are often seen as economic resources (such as for scrap, treasure, tourism, etc.) but as our previous speaker pointed out can also have geopolitical importance. This lecture will expand upon that theme and demonstrate how information gleaned from shipwrecks can be a military resource with contemporary operational utility.
