Diving Through History on the USS ArizonaWorld War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument's Chief of Cultural Resources Scott Pawlowski went underwater to the USS Arizona on December 8, 2015. We answered questions from the theater audience and from viewers tuning in via Adobe Connect. New shipboard locations previously not shown were also featured. Our goal was to help viewers experience the wreck as it is today, illustrate life aboard the vessel in battle and peace, and understand the world-class science behind managing this hallowed ground for future generations.
Before that, on October 17, 2015, our ParkEd team partnered with the National Park Service Submerged Resources Center to bring you another Live Dive presentation. Scott went underwater to the wreck of the USS Arizona to explain about the damage to the ship from the attack on Pearl Harbor, as well as modern-day science and conservation efforts being supported by the monument. Visitors watched the live broadcast in the visitor center theater or online via Adobe Connect.
