SEARCH is involved in cutting-edge exploration with decades of experience in deep-ocean, high-altitude, and global projects in remote places. Our staff serve as lead scientists and archaeological principal investigators on scientific expeditions having led remote-sensing missions to the jungles of northern South America, orchestrated oceanographic surveys, and collaborated with scientific teams exploring the Antarctic. Our exploration work includes Shackleton’s Endurance, Clotilda, USS Nevada, and Beeswax (“The Goonies”) shipwrecks. News of these discoveries has reached more than 2 billion people worldwide, and they continue to enrich popular culture, science, and education. We leverage the power of archaeology on land and underwater to connect all humans and to advance the communities we serve.
