Students from a New Jersey college are preparing to spend the summer delving into details of a 150-year-old shipwreck in the Atlantic Ocean.
The students are to use sonar and other equipment to map the site of the steamship Robert J. Walker, gathering data for divers to use in further explorations.
The ship was used by the United States Coast Survey starting in 1848. It went down in 1860 after colliding with another vessel. Twenty people died in the crash.
Fisherman found the site 10 miles off Atlantic City in the 1970s and it's been popular with divers ever since, according to The Press of Atlantic City.
It's now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
