Many shipwrecks throughout history have been caused by enormous waves. Shipwrecks have occurred in all oceans of the world but they are more common in what is commonly known as Bermuda Triangle. The land-ocean interaction in that region leads to huge waves, which are not always navigable. Shipwrecks have occurred in Great Lakes as well.
- Research and post information about the major causes of shipwrecks.
- Research one specific shipwreck and post the following: statistics of the ship (type of vessel, size, capacity, etc.), cause(s) of wreck, route of the voyage, dates of voyage and wreck, cargo or purpose of voyage, and any other interesting facts.
For the purposes of this discussion post, the shipwreck you pick does not have to have been caused by a large wave and it can have happened in any body of water (fresh or salt). However, try to limit your choice to a shipwreck caused by some sort of natural oceanic happening (e.g., storm, wave, etc.).
