Graveyard of the Atlantic (USS Monitor) 2009

Expedition Graphic 2

Deep Explorers, Inc. in cooperation with NOAA’s Marine Sanctuaries, Rutgers University’s Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences (IMCS)  organized an expedition to survey several shipwrecks off the North Carolina coast in an area know as the Graveyard of the Atlantic.  There were three primary goals of the expedition, the first being, conduct low level side scans of the USS Monitor and other area shipwrecks via Rutgers IMCS  Remus AUV. Goal two was to capture video of specific areas of the the Monitor and the conditions of area shipwrecks for comparative studies.  The third was to record the entire expedition with the latest in HD digital video acquisition and to edit daily reports to be posted on NOAA’s Marine Sanctuary sight.  The following link is the result of our expedition.
