Diving to the bottom of climate change

Climate change and rising sea levels will give diving a new and larger role than in the past. We have to assume that we will increase our use of the sea for food production, and that we will have to turn to the sea for energy from oil and gas, wind and waves. All these things will require divers, and consequently research on diving. “We have to improve the technology and find out more about how the underwater environment affects people,” says NTNU’s foremost expert in diving physiology, Professor Alf O. Brubakk.
