19th-century Shipwreck Rediscovered off Golden Gate Bridge
NOAA has located the underwater wreck of the passenger steamer City of Chester, which sank in 1888 in a collision with the steamer Oceanic in dense fog near where the Golden Gate Bridge stands today. The rediscovery of the wreck restores an important historical link to San Francisco’s early Chinese-American community. Reports at the time initially criticised Oceanic’s Chinese crew in the racially charged atmosphere of the times. Criticism turned to praise, however, when the bravery of the crew in rescuing many of City of Chester’s passengers was revealed. The wreck was then largely forgotten, until now. »»
Predicting Drift of Floating Pumice Can Benefit Shipping

Predicting Drift of Floating Pumice Can Benefit Shipping

  24/04/2014
A technique presented in Nature Communications by researchers from the National Oceanography Centre Southampton (NOCS) and the University of Southampton, UK, will aid in predicting the dispersal and drift patterns of large masses of floating pumice created by volcanic eruptions at sea. Known as 'pumice rafts', these large mobile accumulations of pumice fragments can spread to affect a considerable area of the ocean, damaging vessels and disrupting shipping routes for months or even years. The ability to predict where these rafts will end up could give enough advance warning for protective measures to be put in place on shipping routes or in harbours where the presence of pumice is hazardous. »»
