M3 Sonar Surveys Historic Shipwreck

This April the Canadian Armed Forces and Parks Canada teamed up with SeaBotix to investigate the HMS Breadalbane, the world's northernmost shipwreck located in the Canadian High Arctic.

In 1853 the HMS Breadalbane was part of the rescue mission for Captain Sir John Franklin's lost expedition but was crushed by ice and sank in Lancaster Sound, approximately 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle. The shipwreck was first discovered in 1981 by Dr. Joe McInnis using side-scan sonar.
