The search for Franklin ships has resumed with vigour.

The day before, winds and waves were too strong to do any searching at all.

Today the weather is better. Parks Canada put its sonar in the water and is collecting live data.

Later during the day, the University of Victoria's autonomous underwater vehicle should be launched, too.
