Emily Turton is a technical diver, dive boat skipper and lecturer in Maritime Studies based in Orkney - a group of islands off the top of Scotland.

She can usually be found aboard her purpose-built dive boat MV Huskyan. Emily has dedicated the last 15 years to the wrecks of Scapa Flow and continues to champion the WWI German Fleet Wrecks.

The driving force behind the Scapa 100 Initiative, a project set up to commemorate the centenary of the scuttling of the WWI German High Seas Fleet, Emily also organised the HMS Hampshire 100 and HMS Vanguard 100 surveys in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

In her survey and project work, Emily collaborates with a wide group of people and institutions building expert teams of likeminded individuals. Digital heritage is at the forefront of their work which uses underwater photography, videography and 3D photogrammetry to document shipwrecks and bring them to the surface for the wider community to see.

Emily was inducted as a Fellow in the Explorers Club in October 2018.
