Paleolandscapes and the ca. 8,000 BP Shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico Outer Continental Shelf

Mission Overview

During this mission, scientists conducted remote sensing and sub-bottom profiler surveys to determine if people were living along the now-submerged northwestern Gulf of Mexico and coastal Texas and Louisiana as early as 13,000 years ago, with the objective of adding more information to an overwhelming puzzle. With additional information, they can determine what a place was like, what life would have been like there, and what the people that would have been there were like as well.
