As Mission Erebus and Terror 2015 comes to a close, Parks Canada has released never-before seen photos taken during the expedition.
The images showcase the archaeological work at the wreck of HMS Erebus and present, for the first time, a full view of the wreck without the help of radar imagery.
The Parks Canada-led search for HMS Terror completed two weeks of productive surveying, but the location of the ship still remains a mystery. Nonetheless, the mission resulted in tangible and timely improvements to marine safety, navigation, and search and rescue in Canada’s North.
Parks Canada and its Mission partners have been working over the past weeks to investigate the HMS Erebus and continue the search for HMS Terror. Good weather conditions allowed Parks Canada’s Underwater Archaeology Team to take incredible images of their work.
