Exploring Shipwrecks with Underwater robotics from the Great Lakes to the Florida Keys and beyond.
6:00 PM Tuesday, February 5: Exploring Shipwrecks with Underwater robotics from the Great Lakes to the Florida Keys and beyond.
The presentation will start with a few videos of Great Lake shipwrecks being explored with robots or ROVs. Then it is off to the Florida Keys for sailing trip on a tall ship. Sailing aboard the sailing ship Denis Sullivan we will explore some shipwrecks in the Florida Keys to Fort Jefferson. Truly a different setting than the Great Lakes. Finally the upcoming expedition to the Pacific island nation of Palau will be covered. This expedition’s mission is to support the search for WWII MIAs that are still missing after 70 years. Museum staff intend to travel to these islands in March to help with the search for MIAs.
