Preliminary Work

In late April a team of geologists from the Ruđer Bošković Institute’s Division for Marine and Environmental Research sampled the water column above the site, together with the sediments and living organisms in search of heavy metal levels.  The shipwreck was found to be a small ecological catastrophe that endures to this day.

In May 2013 a survey was conducted on the site, promoted by the University of Zadar, in cooperation with the Department of Geology of the University of Patras, Greece, and sine scan sonar and sub bottom profiler maps are being prepared.

Our team was invited to participate in the preparation of tan exhibition about the Gnalic shipwreck to be held between June 2013 and May 2014 in Zagreb.
