b.w B and C, C for me.

Other choices are not even close. The problem with B is 'who' -isintrusive and not needed.

C also has parallelism - 'Just as an archaeologist needs.......,..a nautical archaeologist needs'

Yes, C.
Idiom - "Just as..., so..." Also, the parallelism is to the peak in C.
"Just as an Arch needs some knowledge to evaluate this, a NArch needs someother knowledge to evaluate that."

doesnt anyone see a problem here in C with the word "so"?

Just as an archi needs X... so a natuiacal needs y? that doesnt make any sense.

It would be correct if it said Just as archi needs X, a naticual needs Y...

any comments?

Just as .... so.... is a correct idiom.

If you omit So, then you will have to omit Just.

As will do the job.
