Hydrographer's Perspective

Several years ago I was fortunate to communicate with a gentlemen who was working on some new software and they happen to use the Empress of Ireland as their target. The Red, Yellow and Orange colors are the warmer colors of the shipwreck which is the port side and is closer to the surface of the water. The Green and Blue are the colder colors and represent deeper water.
