                                            Deep Sea Diving Facts

The act of deep sea diving can be explained as moving downwards into deep water. Some kind of breathing apparatus is used in the process. Deep sea diving is used to repair underwater parts of bridges and ships, to recover valuable things from sunken ships, in military operations and to extract coral, pearls etc. A few people do this for fun as well.

Quick Facts: –

  • Diving suits consist of a one piece waterproof suit. This waterproof suit is made up of rubber and canvas. After wearing this suit, everything is covered except for the head and hands of the diver.
  • Diving reflex is common in all mammals. It can be explained as; a mammal can survive longer without oxygen submerged in cold water as compared to on dry land.
  • Jacques Piccard and his assistant Don Walsh have established a record for the deepest dive by a human. In 1960, they dived in Challenger Deep which is a part of Mariana Trench in Pacific Ocean.
  • Under pressure, oxygen becomes toxic. This is the reason, why at depths special gases are used with low oxygen.
  • After 10 metres of depth, human eyes cannot see red and yellow colour. Human blood will look blue in colour in that depth.
  • The depth below 100 feet affects the human brain. This effect is called as Nitrogen narcosis. Due to this effect, the person will feel drunk and it result in reduced decision making abilities.
  • Helium reduces the effect of nitrogen narcosis.
  • Decompression sickness can cause trouble in breathing, joint pain, fatigue, headache, shock or even death. This sickness occurs when nitrogen bubbles are formed in the bloodstream.
