The RMS Republic:

The Billion dollar Shipwreck of GOLD

The Backstory:

The RMS Republic was a White Star Line steam-powered ocean liner built in 1903. In early morning of 23 January 1909, while sailing from New York City to Gibraltar, the Republic was in a collision with SS Florida in 1909 in which she sank in 270 feet of water aprox 70 miles off of Martha's Vineyard.

At the time there where multiple reports that she was carrying gold and mixed coin worth $250,000 (in 1909 dollars) to be used as payroll for the US Navy's Great White Fleet. In addition to the US Navy coin-monies shipment, various sources reported on a much larger cargo, $3,000,000 in US gold Double Eagles. Among these, The Washington Post reported, "Three million dollars in gold coins lies in the rotting hulk of the White Star liner Republic, lost off Nantucket in January, 1909. Today, those coins would be worth a Billion Dollars.

Captain Martin Bayerle discovered the wreck of the RMS Republic in 1981 and in 1987 he launched a salvage effort. I was the video engineer on the documentary crew of that expedition. The expedition was successful in targeting and excavating their target area, but failed to locate the gold, however. " A perfect landing at the wrong airport…"

With new information all these years later, Captain Martin Bayerle finally thinks he knows where the gold is. With its current value, that cargo would be worth over a Billion Dollars. This is a story of shipwreck diving, history, international politics and a life long quest for treasure.

In the summer of 2022, Captain Martin Bayerle returns to the site of the RMS Republic and we will be there with him.

Human Factors in Diving

Psychological Safety and Just Culture:

Gareth Lock, author of the book "The Human Diver" talks about the two key concepts in dive safety analysis. Psychological safety and just culture.

- Psychological Safety is the belief that you won’t be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes. It’s a shared belief held by members of a team that others on the team will not embarrass, reject, or punish you for speaking up.

- Just Culture is a concept related to systems thinking which emphasizes that mistakes are generally a product of faulty organizational cultures, rather than solely brought about by the person or persons directly involved. In a just culture, after an incident, the question asked is, "What went wrong?" rather than "Who caused the problem?".

In Sept 2021 there will be the online Human Factors in Diving Conference. For more info and how to attend goto: https://www.hf-in-diving-conference.com/

Human Factors in Diving

Part 1: An Introduction

Gareth Lock is a retired RAF officer and dive educator who is the Director of "The Human Diver". This is an organization that's mission is to improve the safety and performance of divers thru the study of Human Factors.

Human Factors are the physical or cognitive properties of individuals, or social behavior which is specific to humans, and influence functioning of technological systems as well as human-environment equilibria. The safety of diving operations can be improved by reducing the frequency of human error and the consequences when it does occur.

Gareth wrote the seminal book on the this topic: Under Pressure: Diving Deeper with Human Factors purchase on Amazon:

Interview with Cardiologist Doug Ebersole MD talks about PFOs (Patent Foramen Ovale) which is a suspected risk factor for DCS (Decompression Sickness). PFO is a relatively benign cardiac defect that creates a passage in a wall that normally separates the left and right upper chambers of the heart. PFO is found in about 25 percent of adults. If gas bubbles form after a dive, the venous bloodstream will carry them to the right side of the heart. In divers with PFO, the bubbles could pass through the opening, bypassing the lungs and theoretically putting the diver at an increased risk of decompression sickness (DCS).

Shipwreck Diving the Warships of Guadalcanal

Exploration Leader Terrence Tysall recounts the expedition to the World War 2 shipwrecks of Guadalcanal. Terrence discusses the history of the battle and the diving technology required to dive shipwreck in the 450fsw depth range. We also discuss the genius of a plan to go back to Guadalcanal......

The Naval Battle of Guadalcanal consisted of a series of sea engagements related to the Japanese effort to reinforce their land forces on Guadalcanal. The Japanese under Admiral Yamamoto Isoruku organized a convoy, embarking 7,000 troops. In conjunction with their troop landings, Japanese naval forces were to bombard US Marines in order to destroy U.S. aircraft that posed a threat to the Japanese ship movements. Ultimately, U.S. naval forces prevented the Japanese bombardment and sank most of the enemy troop transports. The only two U.S. Navy flag officers (Rear Admiral Daniel J. Callaghan, Rear Admiral Norman Scott) to be killed in a World War II surface engagement were lost in this battle. Two U.S. light cruisers, four destroyers, and 35 aircraft were lost; three destroyers were damaged. The Japanese lost two battleships, one heavy cruiser, three destroyers, eleven transports, and 64 aircraft. Japan’s defeat also ended the enemy’s final significant attempt to dislodge the Allied forces in the eastern Solomons.

Battle of Midway Interview. A small piece of oral history of WW2. This special podcast is dedicated to all members past and present of the US Navy and USMC. I posted an interview that I did back in 1999, while on Midway Island. With two veteran PBY pilots of the battle. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PBY_Catalina

The Battle of Midway is widely regarded as the most important naval battle of the Pacific Campaign of World War II. Between 4 and 7 June 1942, approximately one month after the Battle of the Coral Sea and six months after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States Navy decisively defeated an Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) attack against Midway Atoll, inflicting irreparable damage on the Japanese fleet.[8] Military historian John Keegan has called it "the most stunning and decisive blow in the history of naval warfare."

The Japanese operation, like the earlier attack on Pearl Harbor, aimed to eliminate the United States as a strategic power in the Pacific, thereby giving Japan a free hand in establishing its Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. The Japanese hoped that another demoralizing defeat would force the U.S. to capitulate in the Pacific War.

The Japanese plan was to lure the United States' few remaining aircraft carriers into a trap. The Japanese also intended to occupy Midway Atoll as part of an overall plan to extend their defensive perimeter in response to the Doolittle Raid. This operation was considered preparatory for further attacks against Fiji and Samoa.

The plan was handicapped by faulty Japanese assumptions of American reaction and poor initial dispositions. Most significantly, American code breakers were able to determine the date and location of the attack, enabling the forewarned U.S. Navy to set up an ambush of its own. Four Japanese aircraft carriers and a heavy cruiser were sunk in exchange for one American aircraft carrier and a destroyer. After Midway, and the exhausting attrition of the Solomon Islands campaign, Japan's shipbuilding and pilot training programs were unable to keep pace in replacing their losses while the U.S. steadily increased output in both areas.

Rutgers University's underwater vehicle successfully navigates an ocean. Unlike other underwater drones, RU27 and its kin are able to travel without the aid of a propeller. Instead, they move up and down through the top 100 to 200 meters of seawater by adjusting their buoyancy while gliding forward using their swept-back wings. With this strategy, they can go a remarkably long way on a remarkably small amount of energy.

PD87 <audio>

Divers Alert Network:  2008 Technical Diving Conference. The two-day conference, planned for Jan. 18-19, 2008, in Durham, N.C., will feature four half-day workshops. Discussions will include the operational and medical aspects of technical diving. The forum will also address ways to improve effectiveness and safety.

Workshops Overview
PHYSIOLOGY WORKSHOP PLAN
Respiration
Normal respiration and gas exchange at sea level with emphasis on oxygen uptake, CO2 elimination, and ventilatory control. Dependency of CO2 elimination on ventilation. CO2 retention and individual susceptibility. Effects of tidal volume and dead space on alveolar ventilation. Hypo- and hyperventilation. Ventilatory capacity, physical fitness, and respiratory muscle fatigue. Effects of immersion and gas density. Airway collapse and effort independent expiratory flow. Equipment dead space, static lung load, breathing resistance, and work of breathing. Effect of HPNS on respiration. Case reports.

CNS Oxygen Toxicity
Relevant mechanisms of CNS toxicity: free radicals, ventilation, CO2 retention, cerebral blood flow. Risk factors and individual susceptibility. Donald’s WWII studies. Estimating CNS toxicity risk in relation to O2 exposure, review of O2 exposure guidelines, and the O2 clock. O2-CO2 interactions and “Shallow Water Black-Out.? Mixed-gas O2 exposure limits. Recovery from CNS toxicity risk during underwater air breaks. Case reports.

Narcosis and HPNS
Signs and symptoms of nitrogen narcosis; individual susceptibility, accommodation and adaptation to narcosis; effects on narcosis of rate of compression, oxygen and carbon dioxide; onset depths of narcosis; narcotic potencies of N2, He, Ne, Ar, Xe, O2and CO2; oxygen narcosis; recommended depth limits for air diving; mechanism of narcosis; pressure reversal; utility of EAD/END (equivalent air depth/equivalent nitrogen depth). Signs and symptoms of HPNS; individual susceptibility; depth of occurrence; effect on HPNS of compression rate and time at depth; effect of trimix; effect of hydreliox; mechanisms of HPNS; options for reducing HPNS effects given obligatory fast descent rates.

Thermal Mechanisms of heat transfer (radiation, conduction, evaporation, and convection) with application to divers. Physiological temperature control and consequences of heat transfer (work; shivering; regional vasoconstriction; stages of hyperthermia and hypothermia; freezing and non-freezing injury). Respiratory heat transfer (inert gas and density effects). Rewarming and thermal afterdrop (“warm and dead?). Drysuit insulation properties of Ar, He, CO2, air and O2 (is this safe?). Insulation properties of wet undergarments. Tools for thermal modeling. Hotwater suits for shallow in-water decompression stops vs. insulation for dry decompression. (Thermal effects on decompression will be covered in the Decompression Workshop.) Current and new active and passive technologies (power sources, hydrogen thermal batteries, hydrogen catalytic heating, regional rewarming, aerogel garments).

  1. DECOMPRESSION WORKSHOP PLAN
  2. DCI Pathophysiology
  3. DCI signs, symptoms and pathophysiology. Paradoxical thromboembolism and cryptogenic stroke. AGE: pulmonary barotrauma, ASD, PFO, and transpulmonary passage, Type III DCS. PFO detection and diver evaluation. Transpulmonary passage and bubble size. Evidence associating DCS with PFO. Skin bends and PFO. Exercise and pulmonary shunt. PFO correction. Case reports.
  4. DCS Risk Factors
  5. VGE as a measure of decompression stress. Environment: temperature, immersion, exercise. Influence of dive phase (pre-, bottom, deco, post-). Individual: obesity, gender, age, aerobic fitness, individual susceptibility. Adaptation, hydration, alcohol, previous DCS, injury.
  6. Deep Stops
  7. History and theory of deep stops. Empirical methods and rules. Supporting evidence and experimental data. Validation of methodology.
  8. In-Water Recompression
  9. Review of IWR experience. Appropriate signs and symptoms for IWR. Equipment and procedures to minimize IWR risk in event of decompression emergency with no access to recompression chamber. Training requirements. Environmental conditions. Depth measurement and control. Diver monitoring and tending. Surface support. Emergency procedures. Outcome reporting.
  10. DCS Risk Assessment
  11. DCS probability and severity in air and nitrox diving. DCS severity and acceptable DCS risk. Technical diving database, risk analysis and dive condition effects. Examples of tech dive profiles and outcome data. Diver Health Status Form (DHSF). Uploading dive profile and DHSF data to DAN Website. Are technical divers self-selected?
  12. REBREATHER WORKSHOP PLAN
  13. US Navy and UK/EU Perspectives on Rebreather Test Methods and Standards
  14. Rebreather divers must overcome the work of breathing due to breathing resistance, static lung load, and elastance. Inspired CO2 amplifies these effects by increasing ventilation. CO2 sensors and scrubber gauges would decrease this risk. CO2 canister duration is tested as a function of temperature, workload, and depth. O2 control accuracy is assessed.
  15. Testing should be performed on breathing machines and by divers. What US and EU labs are qualified to test rebreathers? What is the role of failure mode effect and criticality analysis (FMECA) in rebreather design? New U.S. Navy performance standards are based on diver tolerance. U.S. Navy and EU rebreather test standards should not differ, but do.
