Between July 26 and August 3, 2002, research was conducted by Prof. William Aylward of the UW-Madison Classics Department, Dr. Jim Compton Tucker of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Research Center, and Jamon Van Den Hoek in partnership with the Troia Project by using a magnetometer linked with a global positioning system receiver (GPS) in the Troad of northwestern Turkey. The purpose was to locate and map the underground pipeline and conduit of the 1st c. A.D. Roman aqueduct that led into Ilion (Roman-era Troy). Though magnetometry was used in the research, other techniques could have been implemented in concert with or in replacement of magnetometric methods. The use of magnetic surveying in the summer of 2002 in the Troad is just one of many recent instances of applying subsurface remote sensing techniques and technologies in an archaeological context.
