The National Oceanic & Atmospheric1 Administration [NOAA], spends most of its time trying to understand and predict changes in the environment, along with conserving2 and managing coastal3 and marine4 resources. But its scientific expertise5 also just made it possible to locate the remains6 of a U.S. Navy patrol boat sunk by a German submarine in World War II.

The ship is the YP-389, which went down about 20 miles off the coast of Cape7 Hatteras, North Carolina, on June 19, 1942. Six sailors were killed in the attack. The wreck8 was found in 300 feet of water, in an area called the Graveyard9 of the Atlantic. That region is the final resting place for more than 80 American, British and German vessels10 lost in the Battle of the Atlantic.

The discovery was made during a summer archaeological expedition to research and document historically significant World War II shipwrecks11. The remains will be surveyed, photographed and documented non-invasively, as the lost boats and ships are considered war graves. The researchers will also survey the marine life that has found a home among the ruins.
