Benchmarking:
The Benchmarking Competence Requirements study published in 2009 looked at what makes someone a competent maritime archaeologist and made recommendations for how to make competency of skills the key for future participation in maritime archaeology in the UK.

Local Economic Benefit:
In 2012 the NAS was commissioned by English Heritage to undertake a study looking at the value of a protected wreck to a local economy. This study, which will be published in 2013 is looking at the visitor diver trail on the protected wreck of the Coronation in Plymouth Sound in Devon which has proved to be very successful in attracting a large number of visiting divers every year since its inception. Nearly 1000 divers visited the wreck of the Coronation in 2012 alone. The study will ask those people that have visited the protected wreck about their experience and focus specifically on the economic spend of their visit and thereby illustrate the value of the visitor trail to the local economy of Plymouth.
