And now it can be told. An interdisciplinary team of ten US Federal agencies, the military, scientists and academicians collaborated on a two-year study of the wreck of USS San Diego on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of its sinking, to determine definitely what happened that day. The study was undertaken in memory of the six sailors killed in the sinking. New technologies were employed in the study, including finite-element engineering modeling of the flooding and sinking timeline based on loads aboard the ship and interior compartmentalization, high density/definition photogrammetry mapping and side scan sonar analysis of the wreck, and underwater unmanned probes (AUV’s and ROV’s – autonomous underwater vehicle and remote-operated vehicle) equipped with laser beams to measure the structure.
From Kansas and the Wizard of Oz to Alabama and Forrest Gump, this is another journey guided by a famous movie story, known by millions of people. Alabama sits as the centerpiece to the southern states in America, bordering Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee, and Georgia.
Originally conceived in 2013, the Divearium “combines a diver training site and an underwater fauna and flora gallery/museum within a partially simulated aquarium environment”. Ultimately, it will serve as a multi-purpose facility where scuba divers will be able to learn and practice their skills while exploring an underwater venue unlike anything else they have experienced
Beyond recreational diving is the world of technical: a discipline that demands the utmost skill, dedication, and precision. Going into deeper depths establishes a degree of confidence: expanding horizons in pursuit of greater accomplishments. Cave diving, with its own set of rules and requirements, requires this confidence in spades, and in turn, opens up a unique world between water and earth: places few have even seen. Delving into the blue, scuba diving television program ScubaNation, is sharing the challenges and adrenaline of cave diving in Suwannee County, Florida: an area lauded as one of the greatest cave diving destinations in the entire world.
