Part of MacInnis AudioVisual Collection
Dr. Joe MacInnis, a physician and underwater researcher, discusses the recent advances in underwater research at a Nipissing University lecture. MacInnis begins with the discovery of the shipwrecks: the Titanic and the Atocha, and follows with the main part of the lecture, the discovery accomplished by his own team of Breadalbane shipwreck. Included are: a brief history of the ship, the efforts that went into the discovery, the difficulties of Arctic exploration as well as the benefits of cold water related to the state of preservation of the ship, and scientific discoveries that result from this type of expedition. The later part of the lecture explores new aspects of undersea research and future expeditions planned for Bermuda and the Canadian Great Lakes.
