Advances in Manned Diving
  • Description
  • Author(s) Information

Underwater diving, as a human activity, is the practice of descending below the water's surface to interact with the environment.  Immersion in water and exposure to high ambient pressure have physiological effects that limit the depths and duration possible in ambient pressure diving. Humans are not physiologically and anatomically well adapted to the environmental conditions of diving, and various equipments have been developed to extend the depth and duration of human dives, and allow different types of work to be done.


In the present book, fifteen typical literatures about Manned Diving published on international authoritative journals were selected to introduce the worldwide newest progress, which contains reviews or original researches on medicine, health, environment, ect. We hope this book can demonstrate advances in Manned Diving as well as give references to the researchers, students and other related people.
