SS Terra Nova Discovered after 70 years

August 13, 2012—Last month, during routine functional performance testing of the mutibeam mapping echosounders on the Schmidt Ocean Institute’s flagship R/V Falkor, the team aboard—including researchers from the University of New Hampshire, Ifremer, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution—discovered the S.S. Terra Nova, a whaler, sealer and polar exploration ship that sunk off the southern coast of Greenland in September, 1943, after being damaged by ice.

Re: SS Terra Nova Discovered after 70 years

Pretty neat, too bad it wasnt discovered still floating trapped in ice flow. I love reading about the boats discovered still floating around after decades on the sea.Real "bermuda triangle" type stuff in a modern age.
