The Silent Wrecks of Kwajalein Atoll

During the months of July and August 2000, members of Oceanic Research Group along with history and dive specialists filmed the underwater sequences for their fifth full-feature documentary, The Silent Wrecks of Kwajalein Atoll. During the Second World War, Japanese and American forces fought for control of the Pacific. Kwajalein Atoll, part of the Marshall Islands, saw several battles during which many ships and planes came to rest on the floor of her lagoon. This film examines the battle for Kwajalein through the underwater wrecks of those battles. Because Kwajalein has remained a U. S. military base since the war, few filmmakers have been able to film these wrecks, but Oceanic Research Group was granted permission by the U. S. Army and the Republic of Marshall Islands to enter her waters. The silent wrecks may now tell their story.

Journal entries from this project began to be posted July 13th when the webmaster arrived on island.
