Deep-Diving Exosuit for Studying Bioluminescence
To study the behavior of fishes and invertebrates that live in the oceans' depths, scientists need to observe and interact with these animals in their habitats. But how? Conventional no-decompression SCUBA diving only affords routine excursions to the first hundred feet of depth. Advanced techniques allow for diving to several hundred feet, but human physiology sets practical limits for the type of work and amount of time at that depth.
