Black Sea Ship Wreck
Transcript of Black Sea Ship Wreck
It was once a lake that in time was a victim of an invasion from the waters of the great Mediterranean sea.
In August 2002 members
of U.S- Bulgarian Research found one of the ship wrecks in the eastern coast of Bulgaria. The depth where they found the wreck was 84 meters underwater.
It was a 2300 years old ancient greek ship wreck. Introduction They've sent Robert Ballard, discoverer of the Titanic, to find more information about the shipwreck. You can tell that he was excited! When they've sent an R.O.V A.K.A Hercules to take a closer look at the ship they discovered something they could not imagine...the ship itself and even its cargo was completely intact! It looked like it was made last week rather than last millenia! But how? Well, you know how the Titanic was found underwater all dirty and eaten away , right? Well , some parts of the ship was eaten by sea termites. So , why didn't this shipwreck have the same fate? The Black Sea has a toxic valve that does not allow underwater animals to live and so forbidding decay to happen.
Ballard also happened to stumble on 2 more shipwrecks! One was a French one and the other was, oddly enough, a Canadian cargo ship. But , beneath the landscape of eternal darkness and cemetery of shipwrecks the crew had discovered something else...In the supposed French shipwreck they found 4 skeletons! Scientists said that one was the captain and the others were his crew. CONCLUSION vehicle and are unoccupied, highly maneuverable and usually operated by a person aboard a vessel. They are mostly used underwater although they are also used for ground or air missions. One of them is even on Mars! R.O.V: An R.O.V stands for remotely operated Submersible vehicle: Submersible vehicle is a small vehicle to operate underwater. It is also known as a submarine. They found the wreck by using this device. Akademic: Akademik is a bulgarian research ship. They released the submersible vehicle from this ship. Why don't you find more about yourself ? It's just three hours away from Bucharest by car . Maybe you might find another wreck !!! The Black Sea is unique in that there is little to no oxygen below a few hundred meters. This cold, anoxic water combines with little bottom currents to create ideal conditions for preserving organic matter This expedition was broadcasted in real time using an innovative telecommunications system called Inner Space. Developed by EDS and VBrick, it transmitted images from the ship via satellite to the University of Rhode Island and Mystic Aquarium, and was then distributed worldwide. Specific locations with Internet II capabilities could view live streaming video 24 hrs/day, and regular updates were presented on a regular Internet Web page. This unique vehicle worked in tandem with the ROV Argus, which served as a lighting and imagery platform.

The cost of physically transporting human beings in small numbers to remote regions of the world and then taking them to the bottom of the ocean in even smaller numbers for short periods of time to explore short stretches of the seafloor is clearly not an efficient way to explore the vast regions of our planet," said Ballard. Objects found in the ship The first thing what the crew saw was a pile of amphora. Amphora is a two handled clay jar used by Greek and Romans. There were probably about 20 to 30 of them. Inside of these amphora there was a lot of bone of fresh water fish. What Robert Ballard actually found out about the wreck was that it could have been a supply boat because as you already read it , it contained a lot of fresh water fish bone. As Little Hercules skims above the sea floor, video cameras mounted on Argus, traveling above, display a birds-eye view of the ROV. The smaller Little Hercules, trailing its fiber-optic tether like a leash, looks like a headlight-equipped computer mouse navigating a foggy green sea floor.
