In this photo provided by NOAA Okeanos Explorer Program, the location of a well preserved shipwreck is seen about 200 miles off the coast of La., at a depth around 4,000 feet, in the Gulf of Mexico, Friday, April 26, 2012. Underwater âriversâ and ponds of liquid brine were discovered during the expedition. When enough pressure is applied to buried salt by overlying seafloor sediments, the salt flows up near the seafloor where it mixes with seawater and dissolves into brine, which is then brought to the seafloor by buoyant gas and oil.

The wood has nearly all disintegrated after more than a century on the sea floor.

While most of the ship's wood has long since disintegrated, copper that sheathed the hull beneath the waterline as a protection against marine-boring organisms remains, leaving a copper shell retaining the form of the ship.

This graphic provided by NOAA Okeanos Explorer Program shows a map produced by NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer's sonar which shows the West Florida Escarpment, a steep undersea cliff. The base of the escarpment, 2,600 meters deep, is shown in blue with the upper rim more than 600 meters above. ROV dives explored the physical structure of the seafloor and biodiversity on soft and hard bottom areas. A well preserved shipwreck, roughly 200 years old, was discovered about 200 miles off the coast of La., at a depth around 4,000 feet, in the Gulf of Mexico. (AP Photo/NOAA Okeanos Explorer Program)
