However: always follow However, with a comma..

Bruce Bennett: Great context, but when exactly? Since 87? Make it clearer here.

mapping how? : Was he side-scanning/multibeaming?

latin names: Make sure you use italics.

Stages of decomposition: Any images?

You need to draw the end of the intro into a focus to drive the other sections, i.e. what is the point of your essay.
