Example text

Helium-oxygen mixtures can allow a shorter decompression time (albeit often with a different profile) than an equivalent saturation dive with the diver breathing air because helium diffuses more rapidly than nitrogen. The use of helium can cause several problems. The speech of a diver at depth may need electronic processing to make it understandable because of the distortion. A diver in a helium atmosphere is more susceptible to heat and cold because the high thermal conductivity speeds the transfer of heat to and from the diver.

Because of the absorption of light, the deep ocean appears black, and lights are needed for observation or photography. Because of the greater absorption of reds by water, some illumination is needed to see the true colours, even at shallow depths. Part of the appeal of diving at night is that objects that have a blue-green colour in natural light have a new brightness when they are illuminated with a torch. Coastal water, with more suspended material, has a maximum transparency in the yellow-green band, about 530 millimicrometres.

These can be relatively successful but can also impose their own problems. Sound Sound in water is transmitted as waves with a longitudinal mode of vibration. The speed of sound is about 1530 metres/second in sea water and 1470 metres/second in fresh water at 15°C. Water is a better transmitter of sound than air, so sounds travel greater distances under water. Low-pitched sounds travel farther than higher-pitched sounds. Transmission of sound is enhanced by reflection from the surface. This reflection also enhances the transmission of sound in air over water but reduces the transmission of sounds from air to water and from water to air.
