FIF 229 Marine Disasters




Course Description

What was the largest loss of life in a single marine disaster? What disaster led to a painting which in turn influenced politics? We will discuss these questions as well as disasters that occurred in the Great Lakes, the experiences of the petroleum industry (outside the Gulf of Mexico) and their impact. We will not discuss the Titanic; however several marine disasters will be discussed, including another luxury liner, the whereabouts of a Swedish warship, the Halifax explosion, and a disaster off of the BC coast.
