Shallow Water Diving

These scientists, working on coral reefs, fish ecology, or seafloor topography, require uninterrupted lengths of time or close work in small areas, which are impossible to do by free diving or snorkeling. Scuba allows them time to observe and the experience of being in the environment yields insights beyond experimental results.

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is the world's leading non-profit oceanographic research organization. Our mission is to explore and understand the ocean and to educate scientists, students, decision-makers, and the public.
