In 1980 Mike Harris led the first-ever expedition to search for the Titanic in the North Atlantic. Using sophisticated side-scan sonar devices scientists from Scripps Institute of Oceanography and Lamont Doherty Geological Observatory discovered a large canyon which they named "Titanic Canyon". They also discovered several interesting sonar targets they wanted to revisit in 1981. "Return to the Titanic" describes what happened and what was accomplished on this second historic Titanic search that took place during the summer of 1981. James 'The Virginian' Drury joined Mike on this second expedition. His insight and comments on how and why things happen on a research vessel at sea are excellent and very interesting.
