From August 16-27 2010 a team from NOAA and the Applied Research Lab at the University of Texas at Austin will search for shipwrecks in Lake Huron. Using an advanced sonar on a REMUS 600 autonomous underwater vehicle (shown if foreground), the team hopes to find shipwrecks in similar states of preservation as the one pictured in the background here- the 300-foot long bulk freighter Norman.
