Fourth Element - the UK based thermal protection manufacturer - came up with the idea in April 2020 with the aim of lifting divers spirits, whilst they remained at home during the first British Government lockdown.
The idea was simple. Take the best photo you can underwater in your bathtub. And if you don't have a bath, just get creative. A sink, bucket, water butt or just about anything that can hold water was perfectly acceptable.
For 40 years, DAN has protected divers against the risks associated with dive injuries. With this experience we have gained an intimate understanding of what can and doesgo wrong — for travelers as well as divers.
Available to U.S. residents, DAN’s new travel insurance plans offer coverage for events including trip cancellations, missed connections, illnesses and injuries, baggage delays — and even qualifying COVID-19-related cancellations and interruptions.
Until recently, the geographic wanderings of the whitespotted eagle ray have always been a mystery.
Now, in a study that took place from 2016 to 2018, a team of researchers have started to unlock some of its movement patterns.
The 54 rays in the study were tagged with acoustic transmitters, along both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic coast of Florida, using collaborative acoustic telemetry networks.
Who are the Top 10 Scuba Diving Pioneers? It doesn't matter if you're a cave diver, wreck diver, deep diver, or none of the above. If Scuba Diving is your passion/profession, you owe a debt of gratitude to the pioneers that came before you, those that shaped the industry.
In this video, GUE diver Nico Lurot is going to count down the TOP 10 Scuba Diving Pioneers whom he believes had (some of) the biggest influences on the industry and sport we love.
For those unfamiliar with this training agency, the qualification is the highest GUE closed-circuit rebreather (CCR) rating, ie advanced Trimix.
This means that John Kendall is able to teach both GUE's CCR courses: CCR Diver Level 1 and CCR Diver Level 2. John now joins the nine other GUE instructors in the world, capable of teaching this course.
Currently there are only 10 GUE CCR2 instructors in the world. Global Underwater Explorers

Four of the six baleen whale species found in the western North Atlantic Ocean (humpback, sei, fin and blue) have changed their distribution patterns in the past decade.
Using 281 passive acoustic recorders moored to the sea floor from the Caribbean Sea to Greenland, researchers from the United States and Canada monitored the movements of the whales from 2004 to 2014. The findings of their study was published in the Global Change Biology journal.
Belugas are gregarious, highly sociable and they regularly form small groups, or pods, which may contain between two and 25 individuals, with an average of 10 members.
Researchers at Michigan State University and the University of Hawaii at Manoa have been uncovering clues as to why some corals bleach while others are resistant, information that could help reefs better weather warming waters in the future.
The team analysed the biochemistry of corals using mass spectrometers to understand what set resistant corals apart from susceptible ones. The scientists found that two different communities of algae lived within the corals. Inside the algae cells were compounds known as lipids.
When studying the data collected from 54 seismometers along the Blanco transform fault, ____ discovered that strong signals on the devices corresponded with the presence of whales in the area.
According to a new study published in Science Advances, sawfish are no longer found in half of the world’s coastal waters, as they are being threatened by extinction due to overfishing and habitat loss.
Researchers conclude the northward range shift demonstrates water temperatures within their preferred temperature range of juvenile white sharks are becoming harder to find.
The animals have historically remained in warmer waters in the southern California Current; Between 1982 and 2013, the northernmost edge of the juveniles' range was located near Santa Barbara (34° N).
