MADRID, May 21. (EUROPA PRESS) –

He Colombian Government will present this Wednesday, May 22, the research project for the discovery of the San José Galleona phase that will be “exploratory and does not contemplate interventions“, as announced on May 14 by the Colombian Ministry of Culture on its website.

The Colombian government, in accordance with the technical table made up of the Colombian Institute of Anthropology and History and the Colombian Navy and the General Maritime Directorate, has established the six steps that will take the characterization phase of the San José Galleon.

First of all, Images of the site will be generated to make a “non-intrusive” diagnosis of the area and remote sensors will be used. Subsequently, a record of the collected images will be made to build an inventory of the archaeological evidence, which will allow a classification of the materials and their origin.

The third step of the investigation will be the pre-diagnosis of conservation, based on the visual record and the processing of the images in a geographic information system, which will establish a starting point of the level of deterioration of the identified elements. After these procedures, an underwater research vessel will be used with dynamic positioning and underwater acoustic positioning technologies, and a remotely operated vehicle, equipped with various sensors and tools, capable of descending to the depth of the deposit.

Finally, will disseminate and disseminate the project processes, which include scientific production through articles and participation in academic and research events, and initiatives aimed at the entire society to promote the social appropriation of the Submerged Cultural Heritage; and finally it will identify, characterize and evaluate the risks, threats and vulnerabilities, both natural and anthropogenic, that may affect the archaeological context.
