Shallow Water Diving with WHOI

"Shallow Water Diving: The Benefits of Being There" produced by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI), spotlights researchers using scuba in shallow water. These scientists, working on coral reefs, fish ecology, and sea floor 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.

Learn more about how researchers use scuba for their research in these WHOI videos about cold water diving and blue water diving.
