Abstract:

A remote sensing survey of two locales slated for weir construction along the lower portion of the Atchafalaya Main Channel was conducted. The primary instrument used was the magnetometer. Over 30 magnetic anomalies were located, most of which appear to be small, individual objects, possibly modern debris. Three anomalies in one of the areas, American Pass, fall adjacent to the preposed location of the weir. Exploratory diving failed to locate the sources of any of the anomalies. It is presumed that the sources or scattered objects, unlikely to be portions of shipwrecks.
