E/V Nautilus Explores World War II Aircraft Carrier Off San Francisco at Farallon Islands

californiadiver.com/ev-nautilus-explores-world-war-ii...arallon-islands-822/

On Tuesday, August 23, Scientists aboard the E/V Nautilus research ship successfully explored the sunken hulk of a World War II aircraft carrier which was sunk off the Farallon Islands. Scuttled in 1951 off of San Francisco, no one has seen this aircraft carrier since until now.

The USS Independence, which was used in the historic tests of the American atom bomb at the Bikini Atoll in 1946, now lies within the Greater Farallones Marine Sanctuary maintained by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
