Maritime Times No 71 Winter 2020

1st May 2020

This issue goes underwater... looking at Hard Hat divers maintaining Tasmania's port infrastructure;  the South Tasman Rise and how it was discovered; midget submarines and a Tasmanian connection to the Normandy landings of 1944; the Cataraqui shipwreck on King Island, Australia's worst civil maritime disaster; the sounds that whales make and how listening to them can aid conservation efforts; Tasmanian kelp forests and their vital and threatened role in conserving Tasmania's coastal biodiversity; the nervousness of sending a robot under the Antarctic sea ice to collect water samples; how marine science students have been affected by CoVID-19 restrictions; submarines that have visited Tasmania PLUS probably our best ever cover photographs!
Take a deep breath and dive in!
